Obamacare Woes Continue With Enrollment Extension, Insurance Cancellations
The Affordable Care Act may have survived the shutdown, but there may be bigger problems with the law than the White House previously acknowledged. The problems with the HealthCare.gov website have forced the administration to extend open enrollment six weeks, until March 31. Now it seems that insurance companies may cancel millions of existing private policies because they don’t meet the new standards. The President promised that people who liked their current insurance would be able to keep it, but apparently he knew that such cancellations were likely.
