Modern Healthcare

Three House Democrats have requested a congressional hearing to examine a new HHS inspector general’s report that found wasteful spending, potentially fraudulent conduct and anti-competitive contracting in Medicare’s Part D program. Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) and Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) have asked Reps. Joseph Pitts (R-Pa.) and Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.), chairmen of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s health subcommittee and oversight and investigations subcommittee, respectively, to hold hearings on the report’s findings.
