According to Pulse of Radio,

The federal official closest to the troubled Affordable Care Act sign-up website, Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner, apologized yesterday (October 29th) for its problems in testimony before a House committee and said things are getting better daily. Tavenner also found herself having to answer questions about cancellation notices some individuals who buy their own health insurance are getting, pointing the finger of blame at insurers, saying, “In fact the issuer has decided to change the plan; [they] didn’t have to.” Under the ACA, insurers are no longer allowed to offer plans that don’t meet certain minimum levels of coverage. Administration officials are saying people who get cancellation notices will be able to find better replacement plans, in some cases for less. However, in some cases it will cost more money, and not all of those people will be eligible for the subsidies being offered to help pay for coverage because they earn more than the income threshold. It’s proving to be a PR black eye for President Obama, who repeatedly said while selling the ACA that people would be able to keep the plans they had if they wanted to.
