Insurance Company Expects Obamacare Enrollment Extension

On a call with investors, a Humana executive also said he was waiting to hear about a delay in the individual mandate.

At least one insurance company expects the Obama administration to give consumers more time to enroll in health coverage after technical troubles with HealthCare.gov have slowed enrollment, Reuters reports.

Humana Chief Operating Office Jim Murray told investors during a call that it is Humana's assumption that the White House will extend the open enrollment period beyond the March 31 deadline.

The Obama administration has said, however, the Affordable Care Act will continue to be implemented on schedule, despite the problems consumers face when using HealthCare.gov.

 

Most recently, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Marilyn Tavenner testified before a Senate committee that "there are no plans to delay the individual mandate."
