MINNEAPOLIS - A subsidiary of a Minnesota-based company has been assigned the task of helping correct computer glitches on the nation's health care exchange website.
UnitedHealthcare provides health care coverage and benefits services, and it's subsidiary, Optum, provides information and technology-enabled health services.
Optum bought Quality Software Services Inc. or QSSI last year. It's that company that has been assigned to improve the functionality of healthcare.gov.
