Noridian Healthcare Solutions, the company fired by Maryland officials after the disastrous launch of the state's health insurance exchange, received a request from federal auditors last month to turn over documents related to the troubled project, chief executive Tom McGraw said Tuesday. McGraw said in a statement that Noridian was "cooperating fully" with the July 30 request by the inspector general's office for the Department of Health and Human Services, which has been auditing the use of federal funds in creating the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange (Johnson and Flaherty, 8/26).
