Sebelius Testifies About Healthcare.gov
WASHINGTON, D.C.- Lawmakers have been waiting to grill Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about the problems with healthcare.gov.
Today, they got their chance.
Sebelius testified before a House committee, and she started off immediately with an apology.
For nearly a month, technical problems have plagued healthcare.gov.
Much of the recent attention has focused on what went wrong and who is to blame.
Fifteen million Americans may lose the cheap, but limited coverage, insurance policies they currently have.
Insurance companies that offered those plans to Americans left out basics that are now required by law under Obamacare, such as hospital coverage, maternity and mental health care prescriptions.
Three independent healthcare experts tell ABC News that Americans are likely to find plans that are just as cheap or cheaper with better coverage, once the marketplace is fully functional.
According to Sebelius, that will be by the end of November.
