Ky. health care system not at high security risk



LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky is not among the more than two-thirds of states that were rated as "high risk" for security problems related to its computers tapping into the federal health insurance exchange system.

The federal data hub is used to check Social Security, Internal Revenue Service and Homeland Security records to verify key personal information for determining coverage eligibility under the Affordable Care Act.

Federal cybersecurity experts worry that the identified state computer systems could become a back door for hackers and identity thieves.

The Obama administration says the issues have been resolved or are being addressed through specific actions and that no successful cyberattacks have occurred.
