Skip to comments.Obama administration will allow more time to enroll in health care on federal marketplace
Posted on 03/25/2014 7:12:58 PM PDT by Hoodat
The Obama administration has decided to give extra time to Americans who say that they are unable to enroll in health-care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline.
Federal officials confirmed Tuesday evening that all consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension.
Under the new rules, people will be able to qualify for an extension by checking a blue box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline. This method will rely on an honor system; the government will not try to determine whether the person is telling the truth.
The rules, which will apply to the federal exchanges operating in three dozen states, will essentially create a large loophole even as White House officials have repeatedly said that the March 31 deadline was firm. . .

Rules? What rules?
More (movable) red lines for the lawless leader.
They really know how to try a man’s patience!
Will all this insanoty end when Burack Hussein Obama leaves office. or os there some BUREAU established to continue altering the law as the great leader sees fit..in his absence?
Are they racist if they check the box?
The only box I’m going to check is the “FUBO” box.
Hey, two weeks ago Sebelius swore under oath to congress that there would be no delay.
So, when do we get to charge her with perjury and send her to prison?
Nah! Everything will normalize in NO-TIME. Survive it, teach your children well...
(with no republican protest)
Stevie Wonder saw this coming.
“Invincibles” (young people): “OK, I haven’t had a cold since I was 23, but you want me to sign over a third of my paycheck?! From my two jobs? Because I can’t get a full-time job with health insurance?”
When mid-April rolls around, and those with the effrontery to want spend their own hard-earned money are still thumbing their noses at Obamacare, the administration will solemnly issue another extension.
(”But this is the very last one. And this time, we mean it ... honest Injun.”)
Senator Cruz has protested it.
I hope they don’t hold their breath waiting for me to sign up. Well...actually I do!
Now! Got the cuffs and the warrant?
Then Obama will force doctors and hospitals to accept the checked box as proof of insurance.
I know that there are more than just the two of us!
I thought the commie ‘RATS said that Obamacare was the “”law of the land.” You can’t change laws just because they are hurting your comrades’ chances of getting reelected.
Obummer is just continuing to osculate his constituency’s hiny.
Keep the time, and forget the fine, you tyrant. I’m not playing.
I certainly wish I shared that view.
Kind of like the code of the pirates, not so much rules as guidelines, don't ya know?
Again? Watsamatta, not many sign-ups?
When these things go to court, will rulings be based on:
* the law as written
* the law as interpreted at the time action was taken
* the law as interpreted that day
* the ruling the judge thinks the administration would like to see in the headlines tomorrow?
The stupidity of this administration is boundless.
HHS is going to reveal how many PAID enrollees in just 24 business hours.
They should make tax day just so we can celebrate two wonderful things from the federal government.
I'd bet not. They'll either waffle or lie through their teeth, but they are not going to tell us the truth.
They are going to rely on an honor system. Right !!!!!!
What a pathetic fiasco this is.
Obama is in a panic.
It will be reported in 24 business hours. Trust me.
Paying more than before and I couldn’t keep my doctor.
Ask Chief Justice? Roberts...
It will be interesting to see how many screwy ways citizens tried to maneuver around this insanity by next April 15th. Health insurance as well as the IRS are going to be a mess.
“Obama is in a panic.”
He looks dreadful and I doubt it’s from missing Michelle.
Oh, great! He’s drawing another red line! Yeah, it’s behind the last red line but he means it this time. Really.
This is unConstitutional - is someone gonna stop this guy??????????????????????????????
So what happens when I’m arrested for breaking a law that was passed unConstitutionally?
Oh ok, I feel better now.
I read somewhere that with ObozoCare being a tax, it can change on the whim. Think about how our tax code changes all the time, without amendments, congressional review, etc.
People who signed up by the deadline should sue that their equal protection is being violated by allowing those who broke the law of the land to get off repeatedly, while those who complied with the law are being punished by the continued confiscation of their property, that is, their wages.
He looks dreadful and I doubt its from missing Michelle.
He’s going to look worse when Putin rips his marbles off for that little slap in the face about Russia being a “regional” or local power. If I were Putin, I’d be in eastern Ukraine tomorrow, securing my supply lines to Crimea.
Obviously they had to do this because of the great success the program’s been... Or that’s what Nan will say in the morning.
everyone HERE has.
Actually you are closer to the truth than you think. Enrollees can make one payment and then can’t be cancelled for 90 days. The Insurance company can start refusing to pay submitted claims after 30 days. So in essence if the insured does not make any more payments but has medical services in days 31 to 90 the insurance company will deny to pay the claim and the doctor or hospital will be on the hook to collect. Good luck with that.
He's got that "my dog ate my homework" look about him. It may be time to go relax some out on the golf course .. maybe another Hawaiian vaca .. yeah, that's da ticket!
The boy king wants another do-over.
How can you AGREE in writing to any insurance policy if the White Hut King can change it by decree in a moment’s notice?
Your rates are not fixed. Your coverage is not fixed. Your deductibles are not fixed. They can all be changed by a stroke of Obama’s pen.
If you believe them after all of their other lies, you deserve what you get...
Why aren’t the Republicans going after all of this as Obama is way overstepping his authority. He castrates them one by one and no one even squawks about it.
1:Republicans do not need to go after any of this. Obamacare it will destroy itself because it's not sustainable.
2:Republicans are too stupid to realize a perfect opportunity. Except for maybe Cruz.
