Modern Healthcare

Concerned that the Internal Revenue Service may be receiving additional funding from HHS to implement the healthcare reform law, two House lawmakers have asked the federal agency to answer a series of questions by the month’s end.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.), a physician who serves as chairman of the tax panel’s oversight subcommittee, sent a letter to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman (PDF) asking if the IRS intends to seek additional funds from HHS to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
