Vizient Asks Congress to Pass Senate Version of Bill to Protect Hospitals from Losing 340B Eligibility During Pandemic

Health care services and group purchasing company Vizient asked Congress on Monday to pass the U.S. Senate version of bipartisan legislation to protect hospitals from losing their 340B eligibility due to changes in patient and payer mix caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vizient urged Congress to pass S. 773 in a letter Monday pegged to continuing debate in Congress over federal appropriations for fiscal year 2022. A stopgap spending bill for the entire government is due to expire on Feb. 18. The successor to it is attracting attention as a vehicle for amendments that would have a hard time being enacted as stand-alone bills.
