Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is coming to Memphis Nov. 1.
An administration official confirmed the visit but said other details – time, location and purpose (although the Affordable Care Act is a good guess on that one) – would be “forthcoming.” However, Memphis Mayor AC Wharton’s office released some information today explaining that the event Friday will be a “health insurance education and enrollment” opportunity, with Sebelius as the special guest.
The event is happening at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Help will be available to people filling out insurance applications on site.
Saturday Night Live lampooned the secretary last weekend for the administration’s rollout of the health insurance website – about which Sebelius is testifying to a congressional committee on Wednesday. Also, on Tuesday U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., called for Sebelius to resign.
