Questions About HealthCare.gov And The Affordable Care Act

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is on Capital Hill today to answer questions would-be health insurance shoppers are having on HealthCare.gov. Yesterday, the head of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Marilyn Tavenner, was grilled on her agency’s role in the development of the site. States running their own exchanges reported an influx of new Medicaid enrollees, and others who never expected to be shopping on the exchanges now may be trying to sign on following notices that their current insurance plans will no longer be offered. Diane and her guests explore questions about the launch of the Affordable Care Act and why Medicaid enrollment is surging.
