Republicans now want the Obama administration to publish detailed exchange activity reports every week.
The House Rules Committee plans to come up with the rules for debating an exchange activity reporting bill, H.R. 3363, Wednesday.
Reps. Lee Terry, R-Omaha, Neb., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., introduced the bill in November, after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published its first batch of exchange activity data.
Managers of many state-based exchanges began reporting activity data around Oct. 1, when the first exchange open enrollment period began.
Terry said when he and Cassidy introduced the bill, he thought HHS put off releasing data because HealthCare.gov, the HHS federal exchange enrollment website, had brought in only 26,794 private plan enrollees.
“It is irresponsible to hide and delay poor enrollment data,” Terry said.
