Sebelius In Austin Pusing For More Insurance Sign-Ups
With the March 31 deadline fast approaching, people are rushing to enroll in health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
Today, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius visited a 2-1-1 call center in Austin.
It's a final push to encourage people to get signed up.
We took advantage of her visit to ask her some questions about the Affordable Care Act.
Lydia: "We talked to a lot of people within the Hispanic community that are worried about giving their information out -- they're a little on guard. What message do you have to people within the Hispanic community or anybody who is scared to give out their information?
Sebelius: "Well, I know that was a huge concern that we have tried to address, I think the most effective message right now is that we have the secretary of homeland security over the immigration department making it very clear on his website, we linked it on our website that any information given to qualify a family member for health insurance will not be used for anything else but health insurance."
Lydia: "Do you expect any delays in the coming days because of the influx of people?
Sebelius: "What we have said is that if you're in line on the 31st we want to make sure you complete the process, so we're cutting people off at midnight, for me it's like having voters in line on election day, we want to make sure people that even if the polls may have closed, that they can continue and vote."
But Sebelius is also adamant that while people can continue to enroll after the deadline, they have to start the process before March 31.
