U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras has decided against the Trump administration in its plan to cut 340B payments for outpatient drugs that took effect in January 2018. Contreras said HHS didn't have legal authority to reduce payments and sidestepped Congressional authority. The American Hospital Association (AHA), America's Essential Hospitals (AEH) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) sued after HHS made the cuts. The groups said the government "exceeded its statutory authority when it cut Medicare reimbursement rates for certain outpatient pharmaceutical drugs by nearly 30%."
