May 18, 2017—340B Health, the association of hospitals and health systems in the 340B drug discount program[1], says it is disappointed with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ decision today to further delay, to Oct. 1, a long-overdue regulation to police the pharmaceutical industry[2].

It says it also is pleased that HHS did not suggest that still more delay might be necessary.
