GOP solicits insurers for info about conversations with HHS

House Republicans have expanded their investigation into the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, requesting that some of the biggest insurance companies provide them with information about the agency’s fundraising efforts. To further explore whether HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius inappropriately solicited health insurers for financial donations to help the agency implement the reform law, GOP lawmakers sent letters to 15 insurers, including Aetna, Cigna, UnitedHealth and WellPoint, according to a statement.
