Health Leaders Media

The failure of federal agencies to implement 25 sets of “significant” recommendations from the Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General has cost U.S. taxpayers and beneficiaries some $24 billion, says an OIG report released last week.

Some 275 of the recommended actions attribute delays and failures of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to follow through to legislative or other obstacles.
