EbeneNews – CA – Trump administration lawyer reportedly says plan to send $ 200 prescription drug coupons to seniors may be illegal


    Robert Charrow, general counsel for the Department of Health and Human Services, said in an internal memo that President Donald Trump’s plan to send citizens’ coupons for prescription drugs can go against election laws, Politico reported, citing three people with knowledge of the subject

    Trump announced the initiative in September and his administration reportedly wanted to send letters outlining the effort to millions of 39 million seniors this week.Many of those eligible for the $ 200 coupons would receive them after the November 3 presidential election, Politico reported

    Charrow reportedly described his concerns about the initiative’s proximity to the election, and told members of the Trump administration to consult with the public integrity section of the Department of Justice on the plan Even before Charrow’s memo, officials said the plan could violate rules on federal spending and Medicare-related testing, Politico reported

    Many health officials in the Trump administration were said to have been surprised when Trump announced the plan, which Politico says has lost momentum over the past two weeks Members of the administration were reluctant to appear closely associated with the initiative, Politico reported, with one telling the website the plan « is quickly becoming radioactive »

    Senior Trump administration officials had said the coupons may provide insight into whether giving Medicare beneficiaries discounts on prescription drugs would cause them to take the drugs more often, Politico reported Charrow has reportedly suggested sending the coupons to a randomized group of seniors to make the initiative a more valid test, but Trump would like to send them to more than half of Medicare beneficiaries

    Seniors favored Trump’s Democratic challenger for the presidency, Joe Biden, in opinion polls, a preference reflected in many other surveys
