Washington, D.C. – Congressman Andy Harris, M.D., has learned that the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General has issued subpoenas into the operation of the MD Health Exchange. Congressman Andy Harris and Congressman Jack Kingston had requested the OIG look into the failed MD Health Exchange. The audit has moved into a full-blown investigation, as evidence of fraud appears to be present. Lieutenant Governor Brown was in charge of overseeing the execution of the exchange.
Congressman Andy Harris, M.D., released the following statement:
“The Office of Inspector General has moved this from an audit into a full-blown investigation. The investigation has included the issuing of subpoenas. I called for the audit of the Maryland exchange because tens of millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted, and those who wasted them should be held accountable. Now we know that fraud may have occurred and subpoenas have been issued. Lt. Gov. Brown was in charge of the exchange, and it appears fraud may have gone on under his watch. Those who wasted and abused taxpayer money, including politicians, must be held accountable."
