White House sought safeguards to reduce ObamaCare fraud
The Hill

The White House is calling for a “more aggressive strategy” to reduce improper payments made by Medicare and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a letter made public to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The Center for Public Integrity obtained the February letter — written by Office of Management and Budget Director Shaun Donovan and addressed to HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell — after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

In the letter, Donovan directs HHS to develop plans to reduce improper payments made by Medicare and the ACA.
