Effective Date of Final Rule on 340B Monetary Penalties Delayed
Final rule takes effect July 1, 2018

Provisions of a proposed rule released earlier this year have been finalized, delaying the effective date of the Health Resources and Services Administration final rule addressing ceiling prices and civil monetary penalties in the 340B Drug Pricing Program. The final rule is now scheduled to take effect July 1, 2018. The delay is intended to allow additional time to consider alternative and supplemental regulatory provisions and for additional rulemaking. As previously reported in CHA News, the final rule had been delayed on multiple occasions to allow time to more fully consider the substantial questions of fact, law and policy raised by the rule.
