Increasing the Transparency of the HHS Insurance Office (OCIIO): An Interactive Public Docket

  OCIIO is a new player in the healthcare and will yield considerable regulatory power.

In order to increase the transparency of this important organization,  the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness, a recognized regulatory watchdog,  has established an Interactive Public Docket (IPD) dedicated to venting its operations and alllowing the public to send it comments on a 24/7 basis.

OCIIO’s operations are subject to the “good government” statutes which “regulate the regulators”. The “good government” statutes include the Data Quality Act, the Paperwork Reduction Act and Executive Order 12966–OMB Regulatory Review.
