Fontneau’s raise and bonus conveniently come after the end of a session in which her organization, Connect for Health Colorado, came under scrutiny for its lack of transparency. Fontneau maintained that her organization was audited by the federal government, which was later proven to be not accurate.
“The Colorado Obamacare exchange has thwarted the openness and transparency we were promised at every turn,” said Kelly Maher, executive director, Compass Colorado. “It’s appalling that the health exchange failed to meet its goals, then Fontneau lied when telling the legislature that her organization had been audited by the federal government and avoided an independent audit. If this was a private business, someone would be trying to figure out how to file criminal charges, but because it’s a government agency, Fontneau gets a bonus.”
