The Obama administration announced a new Obamacare extension for people who have encountered technical difficulties with enrolling on the federal exchange.
New York Times: “Open enrollment was scheduled to end on Monday for all Americans. The White House had previously insisted that the deadline was firm and would not be extended.”
“Under the move planned by the administration, some people will be given a special enrollment period, beyond the deadline, if they can show they were not able to enroll because of an error by the federal exchange or by the Department of Health and Human Services.”
“Aaron Albright, a spokesman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services … said Tuesday that the special enrollment period could be particularly helpful to people with special circumstances and complex cases.”Save to Favorites
