As reported today in the 340B Report, Health Care Provider Groups Slam Gilead’s Conditions on 340B Contract Pharmacy (for subscribers only), and RWC-340B President Shannon Stephenson is quoted throughout (excerpt below).
Ryan White Clinics for 340B Access (RWC-340B) said today it “is gravely disappointed by Gilead’s recent actions to undermine Ryan White Clinics and other safety net providers’ use of the 340B program for the communities we serve.”
“Gilead joins 14 other drug companies in putting their profits before patients by unilaterally making federal policy decisions, thumbing their noses at federal agencies, Congress, and the safety net,” said RWC-340B President Shannon Stephenson said.
340B Health is also included denouncing these recent changes.
Gilead’s announcement comes despite the letter sent by RWC-340B to Mr. Charles Clapton, VP of Federal Governmental Affairs with Gilead requesting exceptions to MAP/PAP Policies.
We will discuss this latest news today at the RWC-340B Board Meeting, however should you have any questions, please let us know.
