Md. panel to get update on health exchange
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A legislative oversight panel on Maryland's troubled health exchanged is holding a meeting to get an update from state officials.
The Joint Oversight Committee of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange is scheduled to meet in Annapolis on Thursday afternoon to hear details about an audit by state analysts.
On Tuesday, the exchange's board of directors voted to replace software for Maryland's badly flawed health-exchange website instead of fixing its current system or partnering with the federal health care exchange.
The technology developed by Deloitte Consulting has been successful in Connecticut's health exchange website.
Maryland officials estimate the cost to be between $40 million and $50 million to make the transition, which could take about seven months.
