ACA 2015 enrollment delayed to after 2014 midterms
The new change will, notably, push the open enrollment period until after the 2014 election, which will be held Nov. 4 — a circumstance that has Republicans crying foul.
The change is aimed at giving insurance companies who offer plans on the exchanges more time to review 2014 enrollments and set rates for the 2015 enrollment period, according to the official, who was granted anonymity to discuss a change that has yet to be finalized and made public.
Republicans were quick to pounce on the change, accusing the administration of a blatantly political effort to delay bad news that might result from the next round of open enrollment until after the election.
"Clearly, President Obama does not want voters to see increased prices, more cancellations and decreased options under Obamacare before they go to the ballot box," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said in a statement. "If Obamacare is so great, why are Democrats so scared of voters knowing its consequences?"
