Sebelius: Health Reform Law Will Boost Preventive Care
Last week, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that provisions in the new health care reform law will drive preventive care and wellness. The reform law will require insurer to cover preventive services, including immunizations, cancer screenings and check-ups, at no additional charge to policyholders. Sebelius also said that President Obama expects his Cabinet members to work together to improve public health.
