New ACA Developments Affecting Individual Coverage & Cancellations

On November 14, President Obama announced that health insurers will be able to extend existing plans for individuals through 2014 that would have been otherwise canceled due to changes under the Affordable Care Act. This proposed fix does not guarantee that extensions will be available, but rather allows insurers to offer the extension and for state regulators to approve it.
