SPOTLIGHT: High-risk health insurance pools are in the works, Sebelius says

The Obama administration began work on Friday to provide "immediate relief for potentially millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions, like diabetes or high-blood pressure, who have been shut out of the insurance system," according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. She was referring to the reduced-rate, high-risk pools to which $5 billion will go into to insure individuals with pre-existing conditions before all insurance companies must accept these individuals in 2014.
