The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has published a final rule to implement civil money penalty (CMP) provisions added to section 340B of the Public Health Service Act under the Affordable Care Act.  In particular, the final rule addresses:  (i) the calculation of the 340B “ceiling price” that may be charged to covered entities; (ii) the substantive standards applicable to CMPs; and (iii) the procedures applicable to the imposition of CMPs.  While the January 5, 2017 final rule sets forth a March 6, 2017 effective date, this rule is presumably impacted by the Trump Administration regulatory review policy, which will push back the effective date to March 21, 2017.
