Sebelius asks mayors, healthcare providers to help with Obamacare education

The Kansas City Star, September 23, 2013

Eleven days before push comes to shove for the federal health insurance marketplace, the nation's top Obamacare official on Friday used a Kansas City forum to seek help from local officials. There are bound to be some glitches Oct. 1, the first day that consumers can shop for individual pricing information on the federal health insurance marketplace, said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. But in an interview, she expressed confidence that the federal government's online system would be ready for consumers in Kansas and Missouri. What's needed, she said, is grass-roots help to educate consumers about their options.
