Cardin Confident Health Care Site Glitches Will Taper Off

November 6th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

Maryland U.S. Senator Ben Cardin acknowledges that there have been plenty of growing pains during the first month of implementation of the Affordable Care Act- however he is confident that once the glitches and delays have been addressed- most American’s will embrace “Obama Care”.  Just this week it was reported that the Maryland Insurance Administration says carriers have notified the state that they plan to discontinue non-grandfathered individual health benefit plans affecting more than 73,000 members in Maryland next year. Individual health insurance policies are being canceled for millions of people nationwide who buy individual insurance policies as federal health care reform requires plans to cover certain benefits. Policies are being discontinued because they don't meet the higher benefit requirements of the Affordable Care Act. Senator Cardin says its far too early in the process to deem the implementation a failure and to look at offering delays.
