In an attempt to bring down out-of-pocket drug costs for Medicare patients, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has proposed cutting Medicare drug payments to hospitals serving low-income and other disadvantaged communities in the government’s so-called 340B program. But an advocacy group for hospitals and other providers that participate in the program contend that CMS’s proposal would actually backfire and cause those hospitals to serve less patients and provide fewer services.
