Added protections for consumer information on health website
San Francisco Chronicle

The Obama administration appears to be making broader changes to protect consumer information on the government’s health insurance website, after objections from lawmakers and privacy advocates. The Associated Press reported last week that details such as consumers’ income and tobacco use were going to private companies with a commercial interest in such data. AP also reported that a number of companies had embedded connections on HealthCare.gov, raising privacy and security issues for some tech experts.
