State Releases Maryland Heath Exchange Salaries, Totaling Millions

Updated: Thursday, January 16 2014, 03:59 PM EST

Numbers released on Thursday by state officials in response to a Public Information Act request show the state's troubled Health Exchange website has hired around 50 workers with annual salaries totaling roughly $3.3 million.

The list includes seven employees who make an excess of $100,000.

Topping out the list was former Health Exchange director Rebecca Peace, who earned $193,000 until she resigned last year after a botched roll-out led to a firestorm of controversy.

The millions in salaries adds to the mounting costs of a site that state official have acknowledged has been riddled with glitches and frustrated potential enrollees.  To date taxpayers have spent in excess of $100 million dollars to launch the site with those growing as the state shuffles vendors.
