Obama administration moves to get more enrolled in health insurance

Los Angeles Times, May 10, 2013
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would provide millions of dollars to community health centers to help them enroll Americans in health insurance programs next year under the president's health law. The move comes as the administration faces growing pressure from Democrats and other supporters of the 2010 Affordable Care Act to show how it will get Americans into health plans, a key goal of the landmark legislation. Insurance companies will be required next year to offer health coverage to all consumers, even if they have preexisting conditions. And most Americans in turn will be required to have health insurance.
