Several bills and committee reports were recently released on the 340B Drug Pricing Program (340B Program). On Jan. 16, 2018, Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., introduced S.2312, the HELP Act, a bill that proposes to amend the 340B Program. On Dec. 21, 2017, Reps. Larry Bucshon, R-Ind., and Scott Peters, D-Calif., introduced H.R. 4710, the 340B PAUSE Act. Both bills propose a two-year moratorium on new disproportionate share hospitals (DSH hospitals) and new DSH hospital child sites that participate in the 340B Program. In addition, each bill requires several new reporting requirements, and the HELP Act imposes new eligibility requirements for children’s and DSH hospitals.
