Supreme Court delivers strong 9-0 ruling in blast against Biden

The Supreme Court ruled that the Department of Health and Human Services violated drug reimbursement rules related to low-income patients.

The decision came this week in a unanimous 9-0 ruling against the Biden administration’s practice.

The ruling

“But HHS improperly relied on a formula that Congress made available only in specific circumstances, which didn’t apply in the case, the court determined. President George W. Bush in 2003 signed the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act into law,” the Epoch Times reported.

“The statute requires HHS to establish reimbursement rates every year for certain outpatient prescription drugs provided by hospitals using a predetermined formula,” it added.

A new plan

“In a statement, the American Hospital Association and other groups involved in the case called the decision a ‘decisive victory for vulnerable communities and the hospitals on which so many patients depend,'” the Associated Press reported.

“They hope to work with the administration and the courts on a reimbursement plan,” it added.

The strong ruling will force the DHS to change its practices as it relates to low-income patients to match what is legally allowed.

The new ruling also pushes back against another Biden policy in a string of losses.

The loss joins a list of growing concerns ahead of the November midterms as Democrats seek to avoid sweeping losses.
