Today, the Alliance to Save America’s 340B Program submitted a response to a bipartisan Senate Request for Information (RFI) seeking policy solutions to improve the 340B Prescription Drug Pricing Program. In early June, Senators John Thune (R-SD), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Jerry Moran (R-KS), and Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) issued the RFI asking subject matter experts and stakeholders to share their views on how to best improve the 340B Program.
“We thank Senators for the opportunity to weigh in as they explore bipartisan policy solutions to put the 340B Program on a sustainable path for the future,” said Thomas Johnson, ASAP 340B’s Executive Director. “ASAP 340B was formed earlier this year by a diverse group of partners who believe that a broad set of reforms are needed to realign the 340B Program to meet the needs of true safety-net providers. Our door remains open to all stakeholders who are ready to discuss how to make that happen.”
In its response, ASAP 340B reiterated its support for a range of policies and statutory changes – consistent with its ten policy principles – that increase program integrity, curb abuse, and better tailor the program to benefit rural and safety-net providers and the patients they serve.
