US Health: Reducing Healthcare Fraud Is A Key Priority For HHS Reveals New Budget

Abstract:
The President's budget helps build the foundation for health insurance reform. The budget strengthens the health care system and improves access to care by investing $995 million to address the shortage of health care providers in underserved areas, increasing funding to expand services at Health Centers by $290 million and allocating nearly $80 million for work to spread the adoption and use of health information technology.

Investing in FDA's Scientific Infrastructure: The Budget includes $25 million for advancing regulatory science at FDA. This initiative builds on the President's commitment to harness the power of science for America's benefit and includes $15 million for nanotechnology related research, which holds great promise for advances in medical products and cosmetics. The additional resources will also enable FDA to update review standards and provide regulatory pathways for new technologies, such as biosimilars.
