“The American people deserve nothing less than to know their information is secure when enrolling for healthcare,” Hatch said. “As I’ve said in the past, the Obamacare exchanges – with the lack of security and safeguards – are a fraudster’s dream. With so much uncertainty in the website and reports that this information may be susceptible to hackers, it’s imperative Americans have peace of mind that their privacy will be protected.”
In addition to Hatch, the Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act is co-sponsored by Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Jerry Moran (R-KS).
The Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act mirrors legislation introduced in the House of Representatives on January 6th by Representative Joe Pitts (R-PA). The House of Representatives is expected to vote on this legislation on Friday, January 10th.
