Modern Healthcare

The congressional battle over a new national liver allocation policy heated up Thursday as opponents of the change used HHS’ brief delay of the new system to put pressure on the Trump administration.

Sens. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) have asked U.S. Comptroller General Gene Dodaro to conduct a thorough review of the new rule. Simultaneously, they are seeking another delay to its implementation from HHS Secretary Alex Azar until the Government Accountability Office’s review is complete.
