Now on Kaiser Health News' blog, Mary Agnes Carey reports on states and the federal government recovering funds from Medicaid drug fraud settlements: "Eager for revenues, states are settling more cases than ever — and at record amounts — with drug makers accused of defrauding Medicaid programs, according to a new analysis from the consumer group Public Citizen" (Carey, 9/27).
Also on the blog, Peggy Girshman writes about two essays currently appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine: "There's nothing unusual about the way The New England Journal of Medicine displays the 'Perspective' section this week: In dueling columns, under an original article on a 'novel androgen-receptor blocker' for prostate cancer. But the authors of two of the perspectives are far from typical: B. Obama and M. Romney" (Girshman, 9/27). Check out what else is on the blog.
