News Alert: New Senate Bill Would Let HRSA Audit 340B Providers to See How They Use 340B Net Income

U.S. Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) introduced legislation last night to let the federal government audit 340B covered entities to determine how they use net income from drugs bought under the 340B program.

Braun filed the bill late yesterday. According to his office, its purpose is “to ensure that the net income from purchases under the 340B program benefits low-income and uninsured patients of all covered entities.” Unlike some of the other recent legislation targeting 340B covered entities, this bill would apply to all 340B provider categories not just hospitals. Over the years, Braun has advocated for a number of 340B reforms that are backed by the drug industry.  So far, he has not been able to garner bipartisan support for his efforts.
