Exclusive: Obama allies revive push for Obamacare CEO

The recommendation, in a report due to be released by the Washington-based Center for American Progress think tank, calls for a major shakeup within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which presided over last year’s disastrous rollout of the federal market portal, HealthCare.gov. The CEO would answer only to President Barack Obama and his intended new health secretary, Sylvia Mathews Burwell. CAP’s plan would have the CEO assume full oversight of both federal and state exchanges, as well as insurers and market regulations, but not Medicare or Medicaid.
