ObamaCare Navigators Won’t Undergo Background Checks, But Will Have Access to Your Personal Information!

Thirteen state attorneys general are giving Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius 10 days to answer questions about ObamaCare “navigators,” people being hired to review personal information on millions of Americans enrolling in the program. It’s unclear how many of these navigators there will be but the numbers expected to reach the tens of thousands range.  These attorneys general are concerned that a lack of hiring background checks and other safeguards open up the possibility for massive identity theft.

Obama’s New Math Curriculum Gives Kids Points for Wrong Answers?!

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey joined America Live and said that the basic concern is that the navigators will be inadequately trained and won’t have appropriate standards to ensure that the consumer’s privacy is protected.

“What the administration has done with respect to navigators is that they’ve cut back on the training requirements for these individuals from 30 to about 20 hours, and they haven’t given them an adequate amount of standards. So, what that … tells me is that we’re going to be vulnerable to massive instances of identity theft across the country. Because these navigators are going to have access to some of the most personal and sensitive information that consumers have,” he told Shannon Bream.

The navigators may have access to social security numbers, tax returns, and medical history.

Scarier still, Morrisey said that it’s unclear what type of oversight there will be for the navigators.
