Sebelius: We’re Not Extending Key Obamacare Deadline

As we’ve reported over the last couple of days (here and here), insurance companies who are participating in the Obamacare exchanges have big concerns about extending the open enrollment period past the currently scheduled end date of March 31.

It sounds like HHS has heard and understands those concerns.

Kathleen Sebelius said this morning during her congressional testimony that the deadline wasn’t moving: “It’s important for the insurance partners to know who is in their pool so again they can stay in the market next year and know who they are insuring.”
