• In brief: Watchdog group pushes bidding review

    From: HME News

    WASHINGTON – The Center for Regulatory Effectiveness (CRE) sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Tuesday requesting that the department place the “highest” priority on reviewing the competitive bidding program. President Obama on Jan. 18 issued an executive order, “Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,” which seeks examples of problematic rules. In its letter, the CRE said the competitive bidding rule will result in a loss of jobs, create needless burdens, strips beneficiaries of freedom of choice and violates accepted auction principles.
