Federal gov. to investigate Hawaii health exchange

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii Sen. Sam Slom says the federal government will conduct an investigation of Hawaii's troubled health exchange.

Slom announced the investigation Thursday. He said the federal Government Accountability Office chose to investigate the Hawaii Health Connector after Slom's request.

Slom had written a letter to the federal government requesting an investigation in late March. He says taxpayers and lawmakers should be outraged at the Connector's lack of planning and money management.

Slom says the government accountability office confirmed the investigation Wednesday. He says the office will investigate how the Connector used more than $200 million in federal grants.

Officials from Hawaii's health exchange have said the exchange is not financially sustainable. The Legislature is considering supporting the exchange through funds or a fee to insurance companies.
