The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has announced a new lawsuit against Apexus, LLC, a company contracted to negotiate 340B price discounts for qualifying non-profit healthcare organizations that serve at-risk populations. The AHF alleges that Apexus has failed to negotiate prices for life-saving HIV and AIDS medications, limiting the non-profit’s efforts to serve at-risk people living with HIV or AIDS.
According to AHF attorney David Gruen, “AHF brought this civil action to recover the many millions of dollars lost due to Apexus’ failure to conduct timely and successful price negotiations on our behalf in violation of the exclusive contracts Apexus entered into with HRSA. They have one job, and they won’t do it. In a time of rising healthcare costs, and rural hospitals closing in record numbers, Apexus’ unlawful inaction is hurting nonprofits and the patients they serve”
