Sebelius open to talks on care for poor
Modern Healthcare

As political debate continues in nearly half of the states in the country over whether to expand their Medicaid programs, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Monday that her agency was open to discussing with state leaders their proposals on how to provide healthcare to their poorest residents. Speaking before an annual meeting of the National Conference of State Legislatures, according to published reports, Sebelius urged state lawmakers to move past political debate of the plan that has been a focal point for opposition since the passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2010.
