House GOP Lawmaker Reintroduces Bill to Collect and Report 340B Hospital Data

U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) has reintroduced a comprehensive health care bill he sponsored during the last session of Congress that would create new reporting requirements for 340B disproportionate share (DSH), children’s, and free-standing cancer hospitals and their child sites.

Westerman, a Hot Springs native who represents the Fourth District of Arkansas, filed H.R. 8588, the Fair Care Act, in late July along with fellow Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio. It is virtually identical to legislation with the same name that Westerman introduced in October 2020. Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) introduced companion legislation during the 116th Congress but has not so far during the current session. Last year, Braun introduced a bill to let the federal government audit all 340B covered entities to determine how they use net income from drugs bought under the 340B program.
