Obama's Team to Clarify Health Care Penalties

David Jackson, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is seeking to clarify penalty rules for people who delay signing up for coverage under the new health care law.

Simply put: People who wait until the end of the initial enrollment period - March 31 - will not be penalized.

The Obama administration is preparing legal guidance to address a confusion of dates in the law, which says people must sign up by the 15th of one month to receive coverage on the first of the next month.

That means someone who signed up after Feb. 15 would not be covered until April 1 - and the law also says that people who go three months without coverage are subject to penalties, $95 or 1% of income, whichever is higher.

That is not the case, the White House says.

Help Navigating through the Health Insurance Marketplace

Since the healthcare marketplace opened last week with the advent of the Affordable Healthcare Act, there have been many problems with navigating through the website, most of them caused by high volume.  For other people, all the options are overwhelming once they actually get to create that account.

More than 200 of you were able to talk to UGA's Healthcare Navigators during 13WMAZ's phone bank Thursday.
