The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has invited health insurers to test the revamped HealthCare.Gov site today but only if they “acknowledge the confidentiality of this process.”

Despite the gag order, which states that the testers “will not use, disclose, describe, post to a public form, or in any way share Test Data with any person or entity, including but not limited to the media,” the Wall Street Journal obtained a copy of the confidential CMS email to insurers quoted here.

If it was so easy to obtain the email, won’t details of the tests be sure to follow?
