As was discussed on our blog previously in December (“Understanding the Affordable Care Act”), Obamacare can provide our clients and the estimated 48 million Americans without health coverage with a critical option for medical insurance. With the March 31, 2014 deadline to enroll or face possible tax penalties fast approaching, Pond Lehocky wanted to provide you with some additional information, news articles, and resources about Obamacare.
- With 4.2 million people already enrolled, experts agree that Obamacare has enough people signed up to ensure the marketplace is a viable and sustainable option. You can read more from Forbe here.
- Though many Obamacare deadlines have been pushed back, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, has stated publicly that the March 31st deadline will not be delayed.
