FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A website similar to Kentucky's health insurance exchange site has been taken down and no longer appears in Google search results after action by Attorney General Jack Conway.

The website was similar to Kentucky's official health insurance exchange site, and Conway's office said Tuesday that some consumers trying to find the Kentucky site were landing at the copycat site instead and being given wrong information.

The attorney general's Office of Consumer Protection contacted owners of the website on Nov. 26 and demanded the site be taken down. Conway's office said Google was also contacted and asked to remove the site from search results.

The release said it is the third health insurance-related website the office has taken action against, resulting in them being taken down, corrected or blocked.
