White House health-policy adviser Phil Schiliro on Thursday said that the latest Obamacare extension is not an extension at all. “I want to make clear to folks that this is not an extension, this is aimed at people who are in the system, trying to complete their process, but for whatever reason may not do it,” he said.
The administration announced on Tuesday that those in the process of completing an application but who have been unable to complete the process will have until the middle of April to enroll.
“We are letting people complete the process,” Schiliro said. “That’s common sense.”
