Amid calls to resign, Kathleen Sebelius promotes health law

By Associated Press. CREATED Oct 24, 2013

PHOENIX (AP) Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is visiting Phoenix amid calls for her resignation after the clunky rollout of insurance exchanges under President Barack Obama's health law.

The former Kansas governor who is the Obama administration's public point person on the health law's implementation will tour an HHS call center in Phoenix on Thursday.

She'll then go to a health center to talk with so-called  "navigators'' who have been trained to educate people about enrolling for coverage.

The visit will take place amid intense scrutiny of the website's startup. Computer problems have kept many consumers from signing up through new online markets.

Sebelius has said her agency is bringing in more experts and specialists from government and industry to improve the system.
