You really can keep it (for another year, if your insurance company agrees).
The Prez just announced that insurance companies can (but don’t have to) extend plans in the individual and small-group markets even if they don’t meet the criteria for Obamacare.
Insurers must tell their customers what benefits these plans lack and that they have more alternatives in the Obamacare exchanges, including subsidies for many. Some people are about to discover their plans don’t cover things like, oh, hospitalization.
So the WH is basically shoveling some of the poop it is thigh-high in and dumping it on insurance companies and state insurance commissioners to deal with. After all, many of these policies no longer exist and it’s no small task to re-create them.
The legal authority for this? The Prez is using his “enforcement discretion.” Yes, they just made that up.
