Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., has introduced two bills regarding health insurance exchange navigators. One would require HHS to ensure, before releasing funds, that navigators will not recommend, endorse or provide advice regarding specific insurance plans; will not accept compensation contingent upon enrolling consumers in a plan; and will not violate any insurance laws or regulations. A second bill would implement policies, certifications and audits to guard against fraud and abuse.
