Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), non-grandfathered group health plans and health insurance issuers must report to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) about efforts to improve health outcomes for treatment and services under the plan, to prevent hospital readmissions, to improve patient safety and implement wellness and health promotion activities.

Enforcement of this requirement is delayed until regulations are issued by HHS.
