The Obama administration is delaying online Obamacare enrollement for small businesses and people who primarily speak Spanish, according to an Associated Press report.
The online exchanges are scheduled to open Oct. 1. However, the AP reports that while small businesses can go online and shop around, they will not be able to finalize any insurance plans until November.
“We wanted to make sure this was going to work properly and be effective for small businesses,” Gary Cohen, the Health and Human Services Department official overseeing the rollout, told the AP. “We just felt like taking the additional time to make sure everything was functioning the way we wanted was the right thing to do.”
