Delaney Statement on Maryland Health Care Exchange Settlement

Jul 21, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today state officials announced that Maryland will recoup $45 million from Noridian, the prime contractor for Maryland’s online health exchange.

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) was a leading voice during the implementation of Maryland’s exchange, calling for the state to move to the federal exchange.  

Delaney releases the following statement:

“I applaud Attorney General Frosh for negotiating this settlement as a partial offset to the pain Marylanders suffered as a result of the failed healthcare exchange roll out under then Governor O`Malley. Our state's failure to manage this roll-out - which cost our taxpayers tens of millions of dollars and prevented thousands of Marylanders from obtaining health insurance - was a painful lesson in government mismanagement and a national embarrassment. As I did in this situation, I will continue to push for a smarter government, one that uses data and best practices to implement transformative programs to help the lives of our citizens.”
