AG’s Express Privacy Concerns

Nebraska’s attorney general has joined with 12 others raising concerns about consumer privacy and the federal health care law.┬áIn a letter to the US Department of Health and Human Services, the AGs complain that not enough has been done to protect the privacy of consumers who will use marketplace navigators to find health care coverage under the federal law. Attorney General Jon Bruning says with it going into effect October 1st, time is running out to properly train navigators. . .

Bruning worries the process will be rushed and consumer private information will be exposed. . .

Community Action of Nebraska has been awarded a 562-Thousand dollar grant to serve as the navigator in Nebraska.
