Hospital Specialty Pharmacies and 340B

This week was a busy week on Capitol Hill but on today’s episode of Health Affairs This Week, Senior Editors Leslie Erdelack and Jessica Bylander look into recent pharmaceutical and drug pricing news.

In one story, Walgreens is investing more into hospital specialty pharmacies to broaden their reach. “Today, around 25 percent of hospitals in the US have an in-house specialty pharmacy—that’s up from 9 percent from just a few years,” says Erdelack.

In another story, a dust up over 340B drug pricing program is playing out between drug companies and the federal government.

Take a break from government shutdown and Capitol Hill news and listen to Health Affairs’ Leslie Erdelack and Jessica Bylander give an overview on the latest on the pharmaceutical industry.
