Ryan White Clinics for 340B Access’ Letter to the Energy and Commerce Committee

17 Jul 2017

Our nation is winning the war against the HIV/AIDS epidemic in large part because of the hard work of RWCs and the support provided by the 340B program. Our 340B clinics have demonstrably increased viral suppression which, in turn, has reduced the spread of this highly contagious disease. If manufacturers are permitted to dial back their 340B program commitments, or if RWCs and other covered entities are subject to less flexibility in how they use 340B savings for their patients, Congress could inadvertently trigger another HIV public health crisis. As such, we ask that the committee use its oversight authority to ensure that the 340B program remains strong for those we serve, rather than cripple it with more regulation and bureaucracy.
