The U.S. Office of the Inspector General (IG) released a report saying the contractor tasked with developing a system security plan had missed deadlines — the same day the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) began allowing people to set up personal accounts and passwords on the website for the federal exchange. The Health Insurance Marketplace website will ask for Social Security numbers and income data as part of determining whether a person qualifies for subsidies toward buying coverage.
