C. Carroll said that they are looking into "suspected unauthorized withdrawals" from accounts of the department's water quality financing administration.

WASHINGTON -- Government financial experts have told the White House that President Clinton's health-care plan may require $100 billion to $150 billion a year in new public and private spending, depending on the scope of benefits guaranteed to all Americans.Several administration officials contend that those numbers are too high and are urging the financial experts to reduce their estimates. So far, they have refused to do so.The estimates, coming at a time when Congress is anxious about new taxes needed to pay for a reorganization of the health care system, are contained in confidential work papers from the President's Task Force on National Health Care Reform.

Vladeck.All of the agency's 4,000 workers -- and more -- will be needed, he said in an interview this week at his office in Washington, where many senior agency officials work."The net impact over the first five to 10 years of health care reform is substantially additive in terms of HCFA's responsibilities," said Mr. Vladeck.
