GOP leaders call for probes into alleged Affordable Care Act fraud

They cite reports that allege insurance brokers are fraudulently enrolling customers into some ACA health plans

House Republican leaders are asking government watchdogs to investigate health insurance sign-ups through the Affordable Care Act, citing reports that allege insurance brokers are fraudulently enrolling customers into some ACA health plans and that millions of Americans may be wrongly benefiting from federal insurance subsidies.

The House Energy and Commerce, Ways and Means, and Judiciary Committees requested Friday that the Government Accountability Office and the inspector general at the Department of Health and Human Services open investigations into the "astonishing level" of potential enrollment fraud, according to letters shared with The Washington Post.

"The scale of the problem suggests malicious intent," Reps. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-Wash.), Jason T. Smith (R-Mo.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote in their letters, requesting a "systemic review of enrollment" from the watchdogs. The three lawmakers are chairs of the Energy and Commerce, Ways and Means, and Judiciary Committees, respectively.
