AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has promised to review the performance of contractors who helped build a foundering web site intended to help people buy health insurance.

Sebelius said Friday she would make sure taxpayers got their money's worth from the private companies contracted to build HealthCare.gov.

During a visit to Austin, she met with two people who had successfully used the web site to enroll in a health plan. Both said they struggled with the site, but were eventually happy with their policies and the prices they paid.

Sebelius said the web site is getting better every day, but still needs improvement. She said the Spanish language version of the site was on hold until the bugs were worked out on the overall system.
