GOP senators seek Sebelius ACA fundraising probe
Modern Healthcare

Senate Republicans have intensified their calls for scrutiny of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ efforts to raise money from private donors to help implement the healthcare reform law. On Thursday, the ranking members of three influential Senate committees formally asked HHS’ inspector general’s office to examine whether Sebelius overstepped any legal or ethical bounds. This past month, lawmakers in both chambers of Congress have questioned whether Sebelius violated federal law by soliciting funds from the private sector for Enroll America, a private group that works to inform Americans about enrolling in health insurance coverage.
