Sebelius Says ACA Funds Set Aside for Public Outreach
During a Senate subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said she is working to address Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus' (D-Mont.) concern that the Affordable Care Act could become a "train wreck" if U.S. residents do not have enough information about the law. She said that the Obama administration has transferred $332 million out of the ACA's Prevention and Public Health Fund to pay for a public outreach campaign.
