GOP House Leaders Want Answers from Becerra on Implementation and Impact of Medicare Drug Price Negotiation

Top U.S. House Republicans sent U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra a letter on Monday asking 18 detailed questions about implementation and oversight of the Inflation Reduction Act’s (IRA) Medicare drug price negotiation provisions. Their interrogation foreshadows intensified oversight and potential challenges to the law that Republicans plan to pursue if they win back control of the House in November.

House Democrats came back from their summer recess on Aug. 12 to pass the IRA on a party-line vote of 220-207. The bill not only includes a host of measures intended to lower drug prices but also addresses climate change and increases funding to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to go after tax cheats.
