Insurers already support HHS secretary nominee

So far, so good for U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Nominee Sylvia Burwell, who had health insurance companies sing her praises late Wednesday, reports The Hill. Burwell's new role comes at a crucial time, especially after former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius resigned last month. A strong relationship between insurers and HHS is key for the Affordable Care Act to succeed. "[Burwell] has a strong track record as an effective manager who works with leaders across the political aisle. As health plans prepare for the next open enrollment period, we look forward to working with her," Karen Ignagni, president of American's Health Insurance Plans, in a statement. Article
