HANOVER, Md. (AP) — A Maryland board is scheduled to discuss what the state will do about its badly flawed health exchange website.

The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange Board of Trustees has a meeting in Hanover on Tuesday evening, when it could officially decide to use technology from another state that has had a more successful exchange rollout. Maryland is one of 14 states with its own exchange.

The deadline for the first enrollment period expired Monday at midnight. Maryland officials have been weighing what to do to be better prepared for the next enrollment period that opens in November.

Also on Tuesday, the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said its review of the exchange would include determining whether the procurement process made federal requirements.
