Report: CMS Officials Say No Protected Information Exposed in Website Hacking Incident

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services officials have concluded that no pertinent tax, health or banking information have been divulged during an Obamacare website hack early October, the Washington Examiner reported Friday.

The officials added that a portion of the healthcare.gov website, which was called the "Direct Enrollment pathway," has already been back online.

CMS previously reported that data from around 75,000 people might have been endangered.

The information was lodged in a part of the Obamacare website that provides a direct link for customers to connect with agents and brokers selling health insurance.
