The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that the Department of Health and Human Services violated drug reimbursement rules for low-income patients.

The court unanimously ruled that HHS, which is led by former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, illegally cut prescription drug reimbursements to hospitals by $1.6 billion per year in connection with a program that was established to help poorer patients.

The decision is considered a victory for hospitals that serve low-income patients and will now allow them to seek the funds they were denied by Becerra’s agency.
