House Republicans Seek ACA Consumer Data Privacy Assurances From IRS
In a letter sent last week to Internal Revenue Service acting Commissioner Daniel Werfel, two House Republicans sought Werfel's assurance that his agency is taking steps to protect the personal data of consumers enrolling in the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges. Reps. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) and Patrick Meehan (R-Pa.) sent the letter after the Treasury Inspector General issued an audit report highlighting inadequacies in IRS' fraud detection system.
