The Obama administration will grant extra time to Americans who say they are unable to enroll in health care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the deadline set for the end of March, Fox News confirmed Tuesday.
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, federal officials told the Washington Post.
The Washington Post reported that users will have a chance to check a box on the website indicating they tried to enroll before the deadline, though the government will not try to determine whether the person actually made an effort to sign up.
“This is probably the first of many (extensions),” Chris Stirewalt told Megyn Kelly Tuesday on “The Kelly File.”
“This is the first nod to a dire political situation,” Stirewalt added.
“Dire political situation.” Not “The system we screwed up is imploding”, but “We’re screwed in November” basically.
Gee another day, another action which the President does not have the constitutional power to make. Based on this delay, the next one will be for people who really truly wanted to sign up but forgot all about it until they got the notice they were being audited by the IRS.
Well, so you know what to do when the time comes:
1. Start your application before 3/31 2. Check the blue box 3. Claim hardship exemption 4. Don’t pay mandate.
