Scam alert issued on new health-care law

WASHINGTON â€” Beware of scam artists taking advantage of the new health-care law to peddle phony insurance policies, President Obama's top health official warned consumers Tuesday.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued the fraud alert as she announced new benefits for seniors and low-income people.
If the yearlong congressional saga that produced the sweeping legislation was murky and confusing, Sebelius vowed that her process for putting the law into effect will be the opposite â€” understandable to a typical consumer. "As soon as we know something," she said, "we're going to tell you."
She will have plenty of time to convince the law's skeptics, with four years to go until its major expansion of coverage.

"As soon as we know something," she said, "we're going to tell you."
I don't know about the rest of you, but the above doesn't really instill a lot of confidence that they will ever really get it right.
