President Barack Obama offered a proposal Thursday to make it easier for Americans whose health insurance plans were slated to be cancelled at the end of the year due to requirements under the Affordable Care Act to keep their current coverage through 2014.
“As I indicated earlier, I completely get how upsetting this can be for Americans … I hear you loud and clear,” Obama said in the White House briefing room, before laying out his proposal, which allows insurers to “extend plans that would otherwise cancelled into 2014.”
The fix “won’t solve every problem for every person, but it’s going to help a lot of people,” he added. He’s also open to working with Congress to make other fixes.
The president also acknowledged that the launch of the Affordable Care Act’s marketplaces has been plagued by problems. “I think it’s fair to say the rollout has been rough so far,” he said. For more go to POLITICO. and stay tuned to News Talk Florida.
