The move comes amid harsh new criticism over the technical problems associated with the roll-out of HealthCare.gov and the revelation that thousands of Americans are losing policies they thought they'd be able to keep.
During a Senate hearing Tuesday focusing on the problems Maryland Senator Barbara Miklulski joined in the criticism.
"I believe there has been a crisis of confidence created in the dysfunctional nature of the website, cancellation of policies and sticker shock for some people," Mikulski said.
