Even the feds need IT.
A federal agency has come up with a form the new state-run health insurance exchanges can use to report security incidents.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is putting the exchange security incident report form, CMS Form 10496, through a federal paperwork review process.
A state is supposed to send a security report to its CMS state officer within one hour of discovering the problem.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act calls for states that run their own state-based public exchanges to enter into tough data security agreements with CMS.
