WASHINGTON, DC – Powers is pleased to announce that Jason Reddish will be joining our Firm as a Principal in the firm’s healthcare law and policy practice. With a wealth of experience in the federal 340B drug discount program, Jason brings unparalleled expertise in navigating the complex legal and compliance challenges faced by safety net providers, pharmacies, and other stakeholders within the 340B program.
In his new role, Jason will help lead Powers’ efforts in advising and representing clients involved in the rapidly evolving 340B program. He will focus on 340B program compliance, strategies, and partnerships involving all covered entity types. Jason has been responsible for drafting and negotiating a wide range of 340B-related agreements, including those with covered entities, contract pharmacies, administrators, payers, pharmacy management companies, government agencies, and various other entities.
Jason will also assist covered entities with developing compliant policies and procedures, conducting audits of current operations, and guiding them through the 340B audit process. Moreover, he will support Powers’ advocacy practice by defending and growing the 340B program for the benefit of all safety net providers and their patients. Jason will continue to represent all categories of covered entities and has developed particularly strong relationships in the federally qualified health center and Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program communities in addition to working with hospitals and other grantees.
Jason began his 340B journey as an Associate at the Powers firm, immersing himself in 340B law and policy from 2012 to 2017. Speaking about his return to Powers, Jason expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “I am very excited to be rejoining Powers and its best-in-the-nation 340B program practice. Powers has led the way in defending and growing the 340B program for the benefit of all participating safety net providers and their patients.”
Throughout his career, Jason has earned a stellar reputation as an authority on transactional, operational, and compliance matters involving the 340B program. His deep understanding of the program enables him to provide specialized advice to his clients, empowering them to maximize their limited resources in serving vulnerable patient populations. He possesses a proven track record in handling complex issues, such as responding to HRSA and manufacturer inquiries, challenging audit findings, and preparing self-disclosures and corrective action plans.
