Top federal health officials are in talks with the National Football League to promote the health law’s insurance marketplaces that begin enrolling people Oct 1. "The NFL is enthusiastically engaged … and they see health promotion as a good thing for them and for the country," Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said during a media briefing Monday. Sebelius said the administration is also talking to other major sports franchises about improving public awareness of the Obamacare online insurance exchanges, which are a critical way the federal health law expands insurance coverage.
