NC Sen. Hagan wants more info on health care site

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan says she wants more answers about what led to the poor rollout of the federal health insurance exchange, particularly on the contractors hired to perform the work up to the Oct. 1 launch.

The Greensboro Democrat told reporters Tuesday she's drawing up a letter to circulate among colleagues seeking information from federal auditors. The draft letter asks for the projected total cost of the health care web portal and how problems can be avoided for future federal IT projects.

Hagan already has signed on to legislation that would extend open enrollment by two months and force insurers to reinstate canceled policies. She's among a handful of Senate Democrats seeking re-election next year who've become more vocal about the web site problems.
