Mesa, Arizona - U.S. Sen.

The letter was sent after media reports claimed the administration asked a representative from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota to withhold marketplace enrollment information and in anticipation of Sec. Sebelius's visit today to an HHS customer call center in Phoenix, AZ for the Health Insurance Marketplace.
