In a 278-page document released this month, federal officials propose to fine-tune, optimize and strengthen the new public health insurance exchanges, including the creation of new laws to protect federal consumer advisers from state interference in performing their duties.

Titled “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; Exchange and Insurance Market Standards for 2015 and Beyond, the document also provides details about innovations set to be introduced to the exchanges in 2015 and 2016 such as an Enrollee Satisfaction Survey to gauge beneficiary opinion about their insurance policies and a Marketplace Survey to help “assess consumer experience” with the exchanges.
