House passes bill to require detailed exchange reports

The House of Representatives yesterday passed a bill that would require federal- and state-run health exchanges to release reports to the public every Monday until the end of March 2015, Politico Pro reported. The reports must include the number of unique visitors, web chats, new account registrations, enrollee zip codes and level of plans selected. The exchange disclosure bill, which would also require exchanges to disclose website problems, private contractors at fault, and pending fixes and their cost, is not expected to pass a Senate vote, Politico Pro noted.
