"I want to sit down and work with the governor on this," Morrisey said, "because I want to make sure that we are speaking with one voice."
Morrisey also expressed concern about the federal government's navigator program for enrollment. Navigators are trained to assist people in enrolling in the health insurance exchange.
In West Virginia, two agencies, Advanced Patient Advocacy LLC of Charleston and West Virginia Parent Training and Information Inc. of Clarksburg, were awarded a total of $642,375 to help people buy insurance on the exchanges.
Morrisey and 12 other attorneys general recently wrote to President Obama's health secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, about their concerns with the program.
Online training for some navigators is not available but might be next week, Morrisey said.
"That leaves a minimal amount of time to get everybody up to speed," Morrisey said. "That's a serious problem, especially when you have individuals that are going to be touching consumers in our state.
"I take consumer protection and identity theft very seriously," he said, "and if we don't know much about these folks, that represents a potential threat for our citizens."
Morrisey expressed concern that federal rules do not mandate background checks or fingerprinting for navigators, although agencies in West Virginia have volunteered to do so, Morrisey said.
"The privacy standards set forth by the federal government are vague, at best," Morrisey said. "There are so many unanswered questions. How will you know who an Obamacare enroller is, compared to a scammer?"
