California Health Benefit Exchange: data collection and transparency.
Existing federal law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), requires each state to establish an American Health Benefit Exchange to facilitate the purchase of qualified health benefit plans by qualified individuals and qualified small employers. Existing state law creates the California Health Benefit Exchange (Exchange), also known as Covered California, to facilitate the enrollment of qualified individuals and qualified small employers in qualified health plans as required under PPACA. Existing law prescribes the duties of the board of the Exchange, including requiring a health plan seeking certification as a qualified health plan to submit specified data to the board. Existing law requires the board, if it requires or has previously required a qualified health plan to report on cost reduction efforts, quality improvements, or disparity reductions, to make public plan-specific data on cost reduction efforts, quality improvements, and disparity reductions, as specified.
This bill would state the Legislature’s intent to enact legislation requiring greater transparency and data collection from qualified health plans offered through the Exchange.
