Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty Images hide caption Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price routinely took trips that ran afoul of official rules, according to an inspector general's report out Friday. While he was secretary of health and human services, Tom Price repeatedly broke federal rules on using chartered and military planes for government travel, resulting in the waste of at least $341,000 in taxpayer dollars, the HHS inspector general said in a report Friday. Price resigned from his post last September , amid intense criticism over his use of private and military aircraft. Out of 21 plane trips reviewed using charter, military and commercial aircraft as well as the presidential fleet, all but one of them — including 12 chartered flights — violated federal regulations, according to the report. As a result, it said, HHS "improperly used Federal funds related to former Secretary Price's Government travel." Price Resigns From Trump Cabinet Amid Private Jet Investigations The report from the office of HHS Inspector General Daniel Levinson says that the current HHS secretary, Alex Azar, should try to recoup the $341,000 that was improperly used. Responding to the report, a spokesman for Price said in a statement that "the IG did not interview Dr. Price, nor attempt to get an interview." "Media coverage inaccurately states the report takes issue with Dr. Price's actions. In fact, the report addresses overall functions of Department staff charged with administering travel," spokesman Nicholas Peters said. The total cost of travel for Price and his staff on the trips in question was $1,185,045, according to the inspector general's report.
