The Health Policy Commission requires a Director to manage the Office of Patient Protection. The Office of Patient Protection (OPP), an office within the HPC’s Office of the General Counsel, regulates and administers the appeals process for Massachusetts residents with fully-insured health plans who challenge a decision by a health insurance carrier to deny coverage. OPP also administers the waiver process for Massachusetts residents who seek to purchase non-group insurance outside of the open enrollment period. OPP publicly reports on statistics collected from the appeals process and from annual reports by health insurance carriers. The Director of OPP reports directly to the General Counsel.
