Will those looking for coverage actually have to prove that they had an issue signing up for Obamacare in order to get an extension?
Check it out:
Good news: if the uninsured “tried” to sign up for healthcare coverage via HealthCare.gov — but couldn’t do so by the looming March 31st deadline — they can get an extension, the Washington Post reported Tuesday night. Simple as that:
The Obama administration has decided to give extra time to Americans who say that they are unable to enroll in health-care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline.
Federal officials confirmed Tuesday evening that 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.
