Majority of GOP-Led States Embrace Obama’s Fix for Canceled Health Plans Under ACA
Twenty-one of 30 states with GOP governors have agreed to comply with President Obama's administrative fix for health plans that would otherwise be canceled for not meeting minimum coverage standards under the Affordable Care Act. Last month, President Obama announced a plan that would allow insurers in 2014 to continue selling insurance plans even if they do not meet the Affordable Care Act's requirements. Meanwhile, 10 of 19 states with Democratic governors have rejected the fix.
