A senior House Republican has stepped up his call for HHS to turn over cost estimates it received from federal actuaries about the healthcare reform legislation before it became law.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas), a physician, late Tuesday introduced a resolution of inquiry requiring HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to hand over any documents, e-mails, records of telephone calls or internal discussions that centered on cost estimates made by the CMS.
