The cost to taxpayers of flaws in Maryland’s online health insurance exchange is coming into focus, with officials estimating at least $30.5 million in unnecessary Medicaid spending and conceding that they have no idea how much it will take to get a system that works. The state has paid $65.4 million to the contractor hired to build the system and fired because of the protracted problems. Costs are likely to keep rising as Maryland figures out how to fix or replace the system. State Senator Nancy Jacobs is calling for a full scale investigation into how the process has, and is being handled.
