Health exchange head to testify to Congress

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The head of Hawaii's troubled health insurance exchange has been called to Congress to testify about the problems faced by the marketplace.

The Hawaii Health Connector's interim director, Tom Matsuda, will head to Washington next week.

Hawaii is one of 10 states with officials who will testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The committee says the states were flagged because security testing was inadequate before the states connected to a federal database. There were 35 states that were deemed a high risk, and 10 states were considered a moderate risk.

Republican Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, of California, says the personal information of Americans who signed up for health insurance through the exchanges was at risk.
