South Dakota Ponders Response to Change in Health Care Law

Posted on Nov 15, 2013

South Dakota insurance regulators said Thursday they need more time to study President Barack Obama's announcement that insurance companies will be allowed to keep offering their customers plans that would otherwise be canceled under the federal health care law.

The president said the administrative changes would give insurance companies the option to extend for one more year policies that would otherwise be canceled because they don't meet the standards set in the Affordable Care Act. State officials would have to approve those changes.
