340B Protecting Access for the Underserved and Safety-net Entities Act or the 340B PAUSE Act

This bill amends the Public Health Service Act to suspend for two years the registration of certain hospitals in the 340B drug pricing program, which requires drug manufacturers to offer discounts on outpatient drugs to registered health care entities.
