White House Meets with Health Care Groups About Obamacare

The Obama administration is seeking to coordinate a press strategy with the healthcare stakeholders who were invited to the White House on Tuesday to discuss the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

The Hill obtained an email sent by a White House official on Monday night with suggestions on how the healthcare officials should deal with the media.

The email, written by a senior communications White House official, states, “I wanted to propose some ideas for how we suggest handling press inquiries around tomorrow’s meeting and make sure we’re all on the same page heading into tomorrow."

The White House informed the participants that it wouldn’t release their names or the names of their organizations ahead of time, but asked if they’d be comfortable if a summary of the meeting were released to the media afterwards.
