This is the November 19, 2013 hearing "Security of Healthcare.gov" held before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of the Tim Murphy: "I convene this hearing of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations to discuss the security of the Healthcare.gov Web site. Americans want to know the answers to two simple questions: is my information secure if I use Healthcare.gov, and why should I believe the administration that it is? It has been nearly 50 days since the launch of Healthcare.gov, and the Web site is still not functioning at an acceptable level. This is despite the numerous promises and assurances the public was given by members of the administration leading up to and over the several months up to the launch of the Web site. This committee heard directly from Secretary Sebelius, Administrator Tavenner, and CCIIO [Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight] Director, Gary Cohen, that they were ready by October 1. We are all deeply troubled that the individuals who want to be in charge of America's healthcare system could not even predict accurately if the Web site would work. And those predictions were not just limited to the Web site. We have also been routinely promised that the Web site was safe, and that Americans' personal information would be secure." Statements, Letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Henry Chao, Jason Providakes, Maggie Bauer, and David Amsler.
