NAIC: Delay exchange enrollment to avoid 'chaos'

Tools

Open enrollment in health insurance exchanges should be delayed to avoid any potential "chaos" that may ensue after the Oct. 1 deadline, NAIC President Jim Donelon told Bloomberg. "It's [President Barack Obama's] calling-card, signature issue and to rush it into implementation before it's ready would not be in his overall interest," Donelon said, adding that state regulators "don't want it to create chaos." Although he admitted the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services hasn't shown any signs of delaying implementation, Donelon added it may be in the president's best interest to do so. Article
