COLUMBIA — South Carolina’s top prosecutor is taking his concerns about implementation of the Affordable Care Act to Congress.
Attorney General Alan Wilson is set to testify Wednesday before a joint hearing of a two U.S. House subcommittees.
Wilson’s office says the Republican was one of 13 attorneys general who wrote to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius regarding security concerns with the so-called navigator program.
More than 100 nonprofits and related organizations have been recruited by the federal government to sign up “navigators” to help the 30 million uninsured people who can now gain coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
Wilson says Congress should put in place safeguards to protect personal information when people consult with navigators.
