Report: Increasing Number of 340B Hospitals Provide Minimal Charity Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 12, 2016) – The Alliance for Integrity and Reform of 340B (AIR340B) today released a new report using public data analyzed by Avalere Health that found a dramatic decline in charity care provided by 340B hospitals in 2014—the first year of the Affordable Care Act’s coverage expansion. Specifically, more than one-third (37 percent) of 340B hospitals provided charity care representing less than 1 percent of total patient costs in 2014. This is notably higher than the 24 percent of hospitals with that low level of charity care in 2011.
