HHS unveils insurance marketplace educational tools
Modern Healthcare

HHS on Monday unveiled its new website and an around-the-clock call center to educate consumers about the open-enrollment process for the health insurance exchanges that is scheduled to start on Oct. 1. The announcement was expected, as HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner had said for months that HHS would launch a public-outreach campaign this summer. Then sources confirmed on Friday that the CMS had planned demonstrations in three Florida cities this week to showcase the website and call-in center.
