The House wants weekly enrollment numbers for the public exchange.
Members of the House voted 259-154 Thursday for H.R. 3362, a public health insurance exchange activity reporting bill.
The bill would require the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work with other federal and state agencies to produce weekly reports on public exchange enrollment, along with related website activity, and technical problems.
The lead sponsors of the bill, Reps. Lee Terry, R-Omaha, Neb., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., introduced the bill Oct. 29, shortly after open enrollment began.
HHS officials said the department put off reporting enrollment data because they were having a hard time getting clean data.
