Obamacare: Delay, delay. What will your plans cost?

Exclusive: U.S. delays deadline for finalizing Obamacare health plans | Reuters.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notified insurance companies on Tuesday that it would not sign final agreements with the plans between September 5 and 9, as originally anticipated, but would wait until mid-September instead, according to insurance industry sources.

Nevertheless, Joanne Peters, a spokeswoman for HHS, said the department remains “on track to open” the marketplaces on time on October 1.

The exchanges, whoos we now use the politically correct term, “marketplaces” will open on October 1st until they won’t. As the article goes on to say, that date isn’t all that important as long as you can sign up in time for coverage starting January 1st.
