POLITICO Pulse: Healthcare Group to Congress: Don’t Cut Fraud Programs


POLITICO Pulse examined ACHCI’s effort to prevent Congress from restructuring vital healthcare auditing programs.


The American Coalition for Healthcare Claims Integrity is asking Congress not to pass legislation that would hurt programs targeting health care fraud and waste — noting that provisions in the health care law have recovered $10.7 billion since 2009, mostly improper payments in Medicare and Medicaid. “Our coalition members have a proven track record of helping return significant funds to government health care programs by identifying waste, fraud and abuse in the system,” spokeswoman Amanda Keating said in a statement. “We are asking Congress to think twice before introducing any new legislation that poses a threat to taxpayers, seniors and accountability in the nation’s health care system.” The coalition’s site: http://properpayments.org/
