Grassley, an Iowa Republican, asked the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general to hand over records related to its notification seven years ago that the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services was overpaying for the allergy shot. “It appears the EpiPen was misclassified for years, and CMS was notified of the problem,” Grassley said in a statement Tuesday. “If no one did anything about the misclassification, why not? This could mean hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer over-payments occurred without justification.” (Edney, 11/8)
