Researchers Sunita Desai (left) and J. Michael McWilliams, M.D., say they found no evidence that hospitals increased uncompensated care after entry into the 340B program any more than hospitals that never entered or had not yet entered the program.

Managed Care Journal Article Gives 340B Hospitals Low Marks on Uncompensated Care

Researchers who reported in 2018 that the 340B program leads to hospital-physician practice consolidation but probably not to better care or outcomes for low-income patients have released a new 340B study, this time on hospital provision of uncompensated care.

Michael McWilliams, M.D., reported yesterday in an article published on the American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) website they found no evidence that general acute care hospitals and critical access hospitals “increased provision of uncompensated care after entry into the 340B program differentially more than hospitals that never entered or had not yet entered the program.”
