MIAMI (AP) -- The Obama Administration is dispatching its top health official to Florida three times in the coming days to promote the Affordable Care Act in a Republican-led state that has been increasingly resistant to carrying out the new federal health law.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius' visit to Orlando on Friday comes days after Florida health officials ordered county health departments across the state to ban counselors trained to help sign people up for health insurance from conducting outreach on their property.

The move brought harsh criticism from Democrats who are already angry at Gov. Rick Scott and House Republicans for not expanding Medicaid.

Sebelius planned to announce a partnership with CVS on Friday, piggy backing on similar deals with Walgreens and Rite Aid to market the health law.
