AP Source: Obama To Add Some GOP Ideas To Plan

A Democratic official tells The Associated Press that President Barack Obama will add some Republican proposals to a revised health care package that he will unveil Wednesday.

Obama plans to send a letter to Democratic congressional leaders on Tuesday detailing his plan.

A Democratic official, who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt the White House release of the letter, said the plan would include expanding the use of fraud investigators disguised as patients to uncover waste and abuse. The plan also would expand pilot programs on medical malpractice reform and would address health savings accounts and Medicaid providers.

Obama planned to make a statement at the White House.
