The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has released a list of new offices it will be creating to implement the parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that affect private health insurance.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has listed the new offices in a notice published today in the Federal Register.
The notice amends the HHS “Statement of Organization, Functions, and Delegations of Authority.”
The HHS secretary’s office now has an Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight that will oversee implementation of the PPACA private insurance provisions.
The CIIO office, in turn, will be in charge of the following entities:
- Office of the Director.
- Office of Oversight.
- Office of Insurance Programs.
- Office of Consumer Support.
