Internal Probe of Controversial Contract Will Be Considered Today by Idaho Insurance Exchange Board

Posted By on Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 9:55 AM

An internal review has been completed in the wake of the controversy swirling around a $375,000 being awarded by the Idaho Health Insurance Exchange Board to one of its former members. The awardee, Frank Chan, founder of Boise-based Applied Computing, voluntarily canceled the deal after increased media attention, beginning with an Associated Press expose.

Three Idaho lawmakers said the deal didn't pass the smell test. Idaho House Speaker Scott Bedke called the deal "indefensible." Caldwell Republican Sen. Jim Rice and McCammon Republican Rep. Kelley Packer, both of whom sit on the board, asked the contract be voided.

The internal probe is scheduled to be presented to the Idaho Health Insurance Exchange Board today, but the meeting is expected to be behind closed doors because "it deals with personnel matters," according to board officials.
