WASHINGTON (AP) — Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration's own predictions that the new health care law's online sign-up system would be ready by Oct. 1 were "just flat out wrong."
Sebelius told NBC's "Meet the Press" in an interview airing Sunday the health care website's launch was "terribly flawed and terribly difficult." She says that eight-week period was her low point of her tenure.
Sebelius last week announced her resignation. She says she wanted to give President Barack Obama enough time to bring in a new health chief.
Sebelius' resignation comes just a week after sign-ups for insurance coverage ended, enrolling 7.1 million people and exceeding initial expectations. Enrollment has since increased to 7.5 million as people were given extra time to complete applications.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Health care providers and advocates for the poor say a disposable diaper shortage among needy families is harming both the infants and their parents.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that local food pantries receive countless requests for diapers but are unable to meet the demand. The CEO of Nurses for Newborns says the organization would need as many as 10,000 diapers a day for their mostly poor clients but can only supply a dozen diapers per person in an emergency.
Disposable diapers can cost up to $100 a month for one child.
Social worker Jessica Adams is organizing a nonprofit St. Louis diaper bank that would accept charitable donations and help distribute the diapers to those in need.
