"Ineligible" health plans get another extension


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.

    In California "state officials" will not allow insurance companies to offer, extend or reinstate policies that were cancelled. Diane Feinstein said she is upset that "state officials" are not allowing insurances companies in California to offer these "cancelled policies". Knowing that makes me feel much better about loosing my health insurance. I am so relieved.
