President Obama has said he's open to improving his health care law now that the Supreme Court has upheld it, but his administration wouldn't say Friday whether the president would agree to repeal any of the provisions Republicans have already tried to axe on their own.
"What we are talking about building here is a system that is really using 21st century technology, and it's not dependent like in the past on bricks and mortar or how many (federal employees) you have," said Hash. "Information technology produces the opportunity for efficiency. It's much more easily scalable if you need to do it for a larger number of individuals."
In an interview, HHS official Hash said the government is undaunted by the prospect of running exchanges in half the states or more.
