The U.S. Attorney’s office has subpoenaed records related to the Massachusetts Health Connector, including a period covering the breakdown of the health exchange’s website, The Associated Press has learned.
Gov. Charlie Baker’s administration confirmed Thursday in a statement that it received a subpoena regarding the health connector’s difficulties dating to 2010 and says it’s fully cooperating with the Justice Department.
Officials said it came soon after Baker took office in January.
The U.S. Attorney’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Massachusetts’ first-in-the-nation health care program served as a model for President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. But the state’s transition to the ACA in 2013-14 proved disastrous, forcing the administration of former Gov. Deval Patrick to place hundreds of thousands of residents into temporary Medicaid coverage.
