WHITE HOUSE DELAYING OBAMACARE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE

WHITE HOUSE DELAYING OBAMACARE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE

The White House announced today that the Obamacare individual mandate deadline will likely be pushed back as much as six weeks.

The individual mandate forces Americans to purchase health insurance that meets certain standards, or pay a fine. Currently, individuals have until February 15 to start the Obamacare application process and avoid a penalty. If the mandate is pushed back, however, that deadline will be moved to March. At this time, it is unknown if Congress will need to approve the deadline switch.
