New Analysis Provides Evidence of Hospitals Not Using the 340B Program as Intended

  • For new disproportionate share hospitals (DSH) participating in the 340B program for the first time in 2015, nearly 7 out of 10 (69 percent) had lower reported charity care levels in 2015 compared to both 2014 and 2013 when they weren’t enrolled in the program.
  • For DSH hospitals that expanded the number of their 340B sites in 2015, 61 percent had lower charity care levels in 2015 compared to both 2014 and 2013 even though they were able to obtain additional revenue from the 340B program through prescriptions at those new 340B sites.
  • Between 2013 and 2015, 340B DSH facilities decreased charity care levels more substantially than non-340B DSH hospitals.
