President Obama, insurer execs discuss health exchange strategies

The chief executives from some of the largest health insurance companies--including Cigna, WellPoint and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans--as well as America's Health Insurance Plans met with President Barack Obama and members of his staff to discuss strategies to promote health insurance exchanges, The New York Times reported. In the hour-long meeting, Obama and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a "productive" conversation with the insurers, including their "shared goal of educating Americans about the value of health insurance and the new health insurance marketplaces," anonymous sources with knowledge of the meeting told the Times. "We're all in this together," Obama told the insurer executives. Article
