Health Care Reform:

Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

Kathleen Sebelius on Health Care Reform

Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius talks with WebMD about health care reform for young adults and others.

Q: Is there one thing that everyone in the country could do to be healthier?

A: A little bit of exercise helps a lot. Thirty minutes a day. I think some sort of personal exercise would be a great start.

Q: What role do online health services like WebMD play in educating consumers?

A: I think WebMD is a huge educational tool and actually I’m looking forward to having a much more robust conversation with [WebMD] about ways we can help populate your web site with lots of information about this bill and work together to get information tools out to the American public. For a lot of people, the health system is very difficult to navigate, very complicated to try to figure out what are the choices, how to make cost-effective decisions. You have a great audience who is eager to get information. We’re eager to find ways to get information out to people, so we can do a lot of good work together.

Q: What personally is your biggest health challenge?

A: Sleep. I need a little more.
