Capsules: HHS Offering Prizes For Videos Promoting Obamacare; Answering Your Questions About The Latest Obamacare Delays

Now on Kaiser Health News' blog, KUHF's Carrie Feibel, working in partnership with KHN and NPR, reports on an HHS' push for videos promoting the health law: "The 'young invincibles' are what health policy wonks call healthy young adults (18-30) who don’t see being uninsured as a problem. But it is a problem, at least for the success of the Affordable Care Act. That’s why the Department of Health and Human Services is spending $30,000 on prizes for a national video contest, in a frank appeal to the YouTube generation" (Feibel, 8/20).

Also on Capsules, Kaiser Health News' Julie Appleby was on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal Monday morning taking questions about the latest Obamacare implementation delay — this one delaying a provision of the law that limits some consumers' out-of-pocket expenses for one year.
