CHARLESTON, W.Va. A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act.

The Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe ) reports that West Virginia Parent Training and Information Inc. declined the $365,000 grant after it received a letter from West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. The letter directed the Clarksburg-based group to answer questions about how it would protect consumer information.

A Virginia group also received an inquiry from Morrisey after it was awarded a similar grant to work as a health insurance navigator in West Virginia. Spokesman Rodney Napier with Richmond, Va.-based Advanced Patient Advocacy says the group answered the attorney general's questions and accepted the grant.
