Health Insurance and Consumer Protection

When the first birthday of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as the Health Care Reform bill, recently passed, one of the main focuses continued to be consumer protection. 
To assure that consumer rights are honored while implementing the provisions of the Health Care Reform bill that address private health insurance, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) created the Center for Consumer Insurance & Information Oversight (OCIIO). Through the OCIIO website a number of valuable resources are accessible, among them regulations that address private health insurance based on provisions of the legislation, facts about the different health plans, and in-depth information about the required establishment of the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP) Program.
