Ryan White Clinics Get Ahead of 340B Reform

Should we change the 340B program into a drug discount solely for patients? While it might sound like a good idea to transfer the discount directly to patients, changing the 340B program in this way would do more harm than good.

This report will work to dispel any arguments that the 340B program should be turned into a drug discount program for patients alone. Hospitals and clinics across the country rely on the 340B program to provide services to patients in need. The program has been working as it should for over 25 years. It needs to remain intact. Click here to read the full statement.
