Illinois Health Campaign Among Nation's Costliest
An Associated Press review of hundreds of pages of documents finds more than 90 people billed at least $270 an hour under a contract with few built-in restraints.
Illinois got a late start, and executives at the contractor, the PR agency Fleishman Hillard, say that meant they needed to flood the assignment with their best people during the first months.
Jennifer Koehler, the top government official for Get Covered Illinois, says the state is making sure there are "legitimate justifications for every expense" submitted by Fleishman Hillard.
