OpenTheGovernment.org Joins Effort to Protect Whisteleblowers in Healthcare Reform Bill

OpenTheGovernment.org joined the Government Accountability Project (GAP) and several other coalition partners in sending a letter and memo to the Senate urging they approve whistleblower protections covering all titles of the healthcare reform bill. Under the approved Senate agreement, whistleblower protections would only cover basic hospital care. Through the help of whistleblowers, the federal government identifies billions of dollars in health care fraud, and would recover more dollars from wrongdoers if whistleblower protections were extended to include a wide range of health care activities, including preventive services, prescriptions, innovative treatments, and access to health care.
