Main Document

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today released Stable and Secure Health Care for America, a series of new state-by-state reports outlining how health insurance reform will improve health care for all Americans.

Sebelius announced the availability of the new reports as part of a Webcast - "Health Insurance Reform: What's In It For You" - where Sebelius and top HHS officials took questions from the American people and discussed the importance of health insurance reform. The new reports are available at www.HealthReform.gov.

"These reports show how health insurance reform will help Americans save money, get better care, strengthen their insurance if they already have it, and afford insurance if they don't," said Sebelius. "Every American will benefit when we pass health insurance reform."

The reports released today show reform will:

Lower health care costs;

Increase health care choices by protecting what works and fixing what's broken; and

Assure quality, affordable care for all Americans.

Today's reports are the second in a series of state-by-state reports on health care across the country. Earlier this summer, Sebelius released The Health Care Status Quo in Your State, a series of state by state reports on the current state of health care in America. The reports are available at www.healthreform.gov/healthcarestatus.html
