ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's health exchange board has voted to end the role of Noridian Healthcare Solutions as the prime information technology contractor for the defective exchange.

State officials made the announcement Monday as a legislative panel convened to hear an update on efforts to fix the exchange.

Exchange officials say they will transition the role of prime IT contractor to Optum/QSSI. That's the general contractor that the exchange hired in December.
