Is Federal Prescription Drug Program Failing to Benefit Patients?

Our second guest today is Dr. Robert Popovian, the Founder of the strategic consulting firm Conquest Advisors. He also serves as Chief Science Policy Officer at the Global Healthy Living Foundation, Senior Healthy Policy Fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute and Visiting Health Policy Fellow at the Pioneer Institute. Today he will discuss the 340-pricing program. Under the 340B Drug Pricing Program, drug manufacturers provide discounted medications to qualifying hospitals and clinics, expecting they pass those savings along to help vulnerable patients access needed treatments.

Today, the program no longer benefits the patients it was created to serve and instead profits hospitals and others in the healthcare system. Recently, members of Congress introduced the 340B ACCESS Act as a step toward ridding the program of abuse.

Dr. Popovian has published extensively and referenced the impact of biopharmaceuticals and health policies on costs and clinical outcomes in the most prominent medical sources and media publications, including the Clinical Economics and Outcomes Research, The Oncologist, Journal of Vaccines and Vaccinations, Journal of American Pharmacists Association, Health Science Journal, USA Today, Washington Examiner, Managed Healthcare Executive, and The Hill. Dr. Popovian’s 340B research can be found at www.pioneerinstitute.org/340babuse. and www.340breform.org/
