The Department of Health and Human Services is designed to assist people in providing essential human services, especially to those who are least capable of providing the for themselves. The Department is responsible for more money than all other departments combined, and overseas major federal assistance programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. As such a huge department, it encapsulates 11 different operating divisions and 300 local programs, all of which are overseen by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
