Obama administration hits pause on health exchanges for small businesses
Southern California Public Radio

The Obama administration is delaying the start of a key piece of the Affordable Care Act. Workers in small businesses will have to wait an additional year to be able to choose from more than one plan in the marketplaces that start next January. The delay – first proposed in regulations issued last month and confirmed earlier this week – is the first acknowledgment by the administration that it won’t be able to meet the tight timetable it has set to get these health exchanges up and running by October 1, when enrollment is set to begin.
