Participants in the federal high-risk pool created in the health law will have another month to find coverage, the Obama administration announced Friday.

This is the third extension for the program, known as PCIP, which was previously set to close Dec. 31, 2013. Existing funds will be used to cover the extension.

In a notice posted on the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan website, officials announced that program enrollees who have not yet purchased coverage through the health law’s online marketplaces, or exchanges, could keep their current coverage until April 30 while they continue their search. But they must enroll in a new plan by April 15 to avoid any gaps in coverage.

In an email, a Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson said the extension was done “as part of our continuing effort to help smooth consumers’ transition into Marketplace coverage.”

Obamacare is an amoeba law.
It morphs weekly.
That’s the real reason the IRS needed +15,000 accountants and attorneys to administer it.

Does Obama have any idea how ridiculous he looks as president of the United States.? He is a joke.
