Rep. Blake Filippi Questions DHHS Director Beane On #UHIP APRA Delays
Rep. Blake A. Filippi questions Acting Director of Department of Humans Service, Eric Beane, at a House Oversight Committee hearing on the UHIP crisis.
On April 24th, Micheal DiBiase had responded to Rep. Serpa’s request, through an ARPA, for UHIP documents but asserted exceptions for the documents requested. However, Dir. Beane vocally explains that more time was needed to produce the documents while their lawyers determine which ones meets the requests without violating privilege.
ARPA allows and initial 10 day response period but 20 day extension are granted if additional time is considered reasonable to comply with the APRA requests for documents.
