President Barack Obama's top health care official is putting health insurers on notice that the new health overhaul law does indeed require them to cover kids with medical problems.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is seeking to dispel any uncertainty over a much-publicized benefit created by the law.
Whether the sternly worded letter Sebelius issued will settle any disputes remains to be seen.
The fine print of the law appears to have been less than completely clear on whether kids with health problems are guaranteed coverage starting this year. If there's a problem, some parents and their children may have to wait four more years for full protection.
