Medicare Part B Inflation Rebate Guidance: Use of the 340B Modifier
This new Product comprises Subregulatory Guidance for all 340B covered entities that submit claims for separately payable Medicare Part B drugs and biologicals through the 340B Program, and its content is based on publically available content within at https://www.congress.gov/117/plaws/publ169/PLAW-117publ169.pdf#page=25.CMS policy or operation subject matter experts also reviewed/cleared this product. This product educates on how to report modifiers “JG” or “TB” on claim lines for drugs acquired through the 340B Program effective January 1, 2023. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 establishes a Part B inflation rebate by manufacturers for certain single source drugs and biologicals with prices increasing faster than the rate of inflation. The “JG” or “TB” modifiers allow us to identify units of drugs acquired through the 340B Program to effectively implement the Part B inflation rebate because units of 340B drugs are excluded from the Part B rebates.
