Feds to Investigate Affordable Care Act Exchanges

The U.S. Government Accountability Office will look into problems with the Affordable Care Act’s state health exchange websites across the country, the Associated Press reports.

The GAO accepted an initial request from a group of House Republicans seeking an audit on how $304 million in federal grants were spent on the Cover Oregon website, and similar requests have come in from several members of Congress and congressional committees related to the rollout of other online healthcare exchanges.

Cover Oregon has yet to sign up a single user without special assistance. GAO spokesman Charles Young said all the state that will be included with Oregon will be determined as the investigation goes forward.
