Just one day before Thanksgiving and on the busiest travel day of the year, the Obama administration has announced another Obamacare delay. Small business will not be able to shop online for health insurance until November of 2014, later than Health and Human Services originally announced.
More from the Washington Post:
Small businesses will still have the option to purchase coverage through the new marketplace but will not be able to do so online. Instead, until next fall, employers with fewer than 50 workers will need to work through a broker or agent to buy health plans for their employees.
"We’ve concluded that we can best serve small employers by continuing this offline process while we concentrate on both creating a smoothly functioning online experience in the SHOP Marketplace, and adding key new features, including an employee choice option and premium aggregation services, by November 2014," the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services wrote in a Q&A distributed to health law stakeholders.
