Ask ProPublica: Medicare wastes billions on name-brand drugs (live chat)
Start Time

ProPublica's latest investigation has revealed that Medicare wastes hundreds of millions of dollars a year by failing to rein in doctors who routinely give patients pricey name-brand drugs when cheaper generic alternatives are available.

Join us Tuesday for an opportunity to talk with two of the reporters who worked on this investigation. Charles Ornstein and Tracy Weber will join us Nov. 19 at 1 pm ET to discuss how this story came together and to answer questions submitted by readers.

The chat will be hosted by Tom Meagher, data editor of Digital First Media.
