Lawmaker Urges Inquiry Into AIG’s Denial of Medical Care
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) wants the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to investigate whether American International Group and other health plans unnecessarily denied and delayed expensive medical treatment for civilian contractors injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cummings also has called for an investigation into the Labor Department's role in managing the federally financed health insurance system for civilians working abroad.
