Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on June 26 released a series of state-specific reports on the “health care status quo,” which she said highlight the urgent need for health reform. The reports include data such as the rising cost of health coverage and the uninsured, and the impact of failing to adequately invest in disease prevention.
“In states across the country, health care costs are going up and families are struggling to get the quality care they need and deserve,” Sebelius said. “We cannot wait to pass reform that protects what works about health care and fixes what’s broken.”
