HHS Taking Steps to Provide Accountability Metrics for Organ Procurement

FreedomWorks Foundation's Regulatory Action Center (RAC) submitted formal comments to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on their proposal regarding organ donation. This rule would create metrics by which organ procurement organizations (OPO) will be guided. As it stands now, there has been enormous amounts of waste, fraud, and abuse in this space and thousands have died as a result.

Accountability for Organ Donations Will Save Thousands of Lives, Billions of Dollars

In today’s politically charged climate, it often seems that politicians aren’t taken seriously unless they spuriously claim that “people will die” if a certain course of action is or is not taken. The rhetoric has been elevated to such a point that only the threat of life or death seems to get the attention of the masses, regardless of whether or not the claim is true. That’s a shame, because an issue has finally come along that does have grave consequences for thousands of Americans.

Support the Organ Procurement Optimization Act, S. 2063

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Organ Procurement Optimization Act, S. 2063. Introduced by Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), the Organ Procurement Optimization Act would require organ procurement organizations (OPOs) to use performance metrics that are objective, verifiable, and not subject to OPO interpretation.

Regulatory Action Center Submits Comments to Urge HHS Oversight on Organ Donations

The FreedomWorks Foundation's Regulatory Action Center (RAC) submitted formal comments to the Center for Medicare Services (CMS) to urge greater oversight of Organ Procurement Organizations (OPO). These OPOs essentially have a government-granted monopoly on organ recovery. However, they routinely waste taxpayer dollars and leave many struggling to receive organs that should have easily been obtained.
