ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The board overseeing Maryland's health exchange has approved a contract to modify software designed to help the state's call center that assists people who try to get signed up for health insurance.

The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange Board of Directors approved the contract with Eventus Solutions Group Thursday evening in a conference call that started at 6 p.m.

Board members did not mention the precise cost of the emergency procurement during the meeting.

BALTIMORE (AP) - A Maryland congressman says subpoenas have been sent in an investigation into Maryland's badly flawed health exchange website.

Rep. Andy Harris said in a statement on Tuesday that an audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General has developed into "a full-blown investigation."

Chris Meekins, a spokesman for the Maryland Republican, says Harris' office received the information during an update late last month on how the audit was proceeding.
