Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) Extension

Moving to accommodate consumers frustrated by the troubled healthcare.gov website, the Obama administration announced Friday that Americans would have an extra week to sign up for health coverage for 2014.

The president’s healthcare law originally required consumers to select a health plan by Dec. 15 in order to be covered on Jan. 1. Americans will now have until Dec. 23 to select a plan, administration officials said in a conference call for reporters.
