Obama administration will allow more time to enroll in health care on federal marketplace
Washington Post ^ | Tuesday, March 25, 8:41 PM | Amy Goldstein

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. . .

Still making it up as they go. Anyone signing up before the beginning of the year should file a lawsuit to recover four months of unnecessary premiums. And how can the Administration allow sign-ups on the honor system when they don't even honor what they say?

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?

Has anyone ever offered an opinion as to how Obama care is still considered law after all the amendments, exemptions, delays and executive orders he has pulled off?

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.”)

What's next? Perhaps proof of premium payment will be on the honor system too. No need to actually pay your insurance premium. Just check a box declaring that you did.

Then Obama will force doctors and hospitals to accept the checked box as proof of insurance.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Equal protection!

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.

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.

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.

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.
