To the Editor The authors of the Viewpoint on the 340B drug discount program1 made several statements about the program as if they were facts, yet cited no evidence or just a newspaper article to support them. Drs Conti and Bach also barely mentioned the significant evidence demonstrating that hospitals enrolled in 340B use their savings to reduce costs and improve care for their patients.
