Sebelius: 'Possible' Convicted Felons Are Handling Americans' Personal Information
CORNYN: "The president is in Dallas, Texas, touting the navigator program, which as you know, people hired to help people navigate the Affordable Care Act. I would like to ask you this question. Isn't it true there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal, sensitive personal information from the individuals they help to sign-up up for the Affordable Care Act?"
SEBELIUS: "That is true. States could have an additional background checks and other features, but it is not part of the federal requirement."
CORNYN: "So a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information unbeknownst to them?"
SEBELIUS: "That is possible. We have contracts with organizations and they have taken the responsibility to screen the individual navigators and make sure that they are job and make sure they are sufficiently trained for the job. And there's a [indecipherable] station, but it is possible."
