HHS seeks $600 million for health law enrollment efforts

Kaiser Health News, March 5, 2014
Just in case Congress doesn't pass President Barack Obama's fiscal 2015 budget plan, officials at the Department of Health and Human Services say they have other options for finding the money they need to implement the health care law. The law is expected to generate $1.2 billion in user fees?including those on health insurers who participate in its online marketplaces, or exchanges. The administration's budget requests an additional $600 million to help run the federal marketplace, call centers and other outreach efforts, said Ellen Murray, assistant HHS secretary for financial resources.
