House Votes to Increase Security Measures on Health Care Exchanges
New York Times

The House voted on Friday to strengthen security protections on the HealthCare.gov website, requiring all security breaches of the health insurance exchanges to be reported in a timely fashion.

The bill — known as the “Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act” — passed largely on party lines, 291 to 122, with 67 Democrats voting for the legislation. The measure would require the health department to inform affected consumers within two business days of any possible breach of the federal or state exchanges.
