Ask HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Your Health Care Reform Questions

The president has given his State of the Union address, the GOP has given its response, and many of you, our WebMD users, have submitted your questions about health care reform. Thank you!

We participated in a special roundtable event with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on January 27th, and we were able to ask some questions that struck a theme among many of you.

You can watch the event below.

You can also read what the president said about health care reform during his State of the Union address, and the GOP response here.

Once again, thank you for all your questions! This is still obviously an important law for many of you, and we are pleased to be able to get some answers, and of course we will continue to provide answers on our Health Insurance Navigator blog and in our ongoing news coverage.
