Obama Will Allow Insurers to Continue Canceled Plans

The White House "will announce a plan for allowing insurance companies to continue offering existing individual insurance policies even if they fall short of the coverage standards set by the 2010 health-care law," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"The move is designed to ease the problem created by the cancellation of hundreds of thousands of policies in recent weeks. It is likely to make it easier for the White House to dissuade Democrats from voting for a House Republican bill due to come to a vote on Friday that the Obama administration believes goes too far in trying to address the cancellation problem."
