Sebelius to Meet with Insurance Company Leaders, Discuss Health Insurance Premiums
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will meet with the CEOs of UnitedHealth Group Inc., WellPoint Inc., Aetna Inc., Health Care Service Corporation and CIGNA HealthCare Inc. along with leaders from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners at the White House at 11:00 AM.
“I’ve received letters from Americans across the country who have seen their health insurance premiums skyrocket and are desperate for relief,” said Sebelius. “These Americans want to know why their premiums continue to skyrocket, what we can do to control health care costs and how we can fix our broken health insurance system. I look forward to discussing the American people’s concerns with the leaders of our nation’s largest insurance companies.”
A portion of the meeting will be pooled press. To receive pool reports, email Berit.Hallberg@hhs.gov
