  1. Sebelius Details Fixes to Healthcare.gov, Labels Launch ’Unacceptable’

    U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified again before a congressional panel about the ailing health insurance website Healthcare.gov. Sebelius assured the panel that “relentless” efforts were being made to fix the bugs, but admitted that the problems were “flawed, frustrating and unacceptable.” During the hearing, Sebelius revealed that the administration had spent $319 million on information technology for the site, up from the $174 million she said on Oct. 30. With confidence in the system running low, it may take some serious shocks to jumpstart the heart of this project.
