Affordable Care Act
When the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was signed into law, one of the pitches was “If you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it.” That statement could come back to haunt the White House because while it’s partially correct, the reality is much more nuanced and those nuances could be what causes headaches for millions of individual insurance customers.
The big push is on to get uninsured Floridians signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist appears to be slowly taking the wrapping off his potential bid to challenge Republican Governor Rick Scott during next year’s gubernatorial election.
Pointing to major problems Americans had trying to sign up online for health insurance, Senator Marco Rubio said he’ll introduce legislation to delay the penalty people will be assessed if they are not covered before the 2014 deadline.
The federal website that offers a key provision of president Obama’s health law launched this week with a sputter, a crash and a lot more web traffic than anyone expected. But by week’s end, with most Floridians still unable to access the online marketplace and sign up for health insurance, organizations were trying to build on momentum even though there was little they could do.

Millions of people across the U.S., including South Florida, can now enroll for coverage in the new government-run online health insurance exchanges but many encountered snarled web traffic and technical glitches during Tuesday’s big launch.
After years of build-up, the Affordable Care Act’s main component, insurance exchanges, went live at midnight Tuesday.
The Republican Party gambled quite a bit on a government shutdown Monday night and the early returns show the GOP may be holding a hand of Aces over Eights, also known as the dead man’s hand.
