"Ineligible" health plans get another extension

|By:, SA News Editor

As flagged, the White House has said consumers will be able to keep healthcare coverage that doesn't meet the standards laid down under Obamacare until October 2017 if their states permit it.

The plans were originally supposed to have been canceled at the end of last year, but were given a reprieve following an uproar.

The latest extension prevents a new set of cancellations before the mid-term elections later this year.
