Another Major Delay For The Affordable Care Act


There’s been another major delay for the Affordable Care Act.

The Obama administration will allow insurers to continue offering bare-bones plans, even if they don't comply with the minimum standards.

Last November, the President announced Americans could keep their plans for another year, even if they don't meet the law's basic coverage requirements.

Now, the administration will allow insurers to offer those plans even longer, avoiding another round of cancellations just weeks before the mid-term elections.

Some say the White House isn't looking out for consumers, but rather Democrats.

“If you look at the timing of it, it really is designed to delay until right after the 2014 elections. And we already know when people started receiving cancellations last time.”

News of the extension comes just 3-weeks before another critical deadline.

March 31st is the last day to sign up for coverage through an insurance exchange.
