The "Administration" is now *allowing* health insurance subsidies for individuals that buy insurance outside of the exchanges.

The reason is because many exchanges are so screwed up that people apparently went to other sources to get insurance.

This one might be "Legal", but the PPACA specifically says insurance bought on the exchanges qualify.

Can't find anything in the PPACA that says otherwise?

More confusion and the articles are vague.

Could be politics in an election year where Democrats are set for possible overwhelming defeats in Congress ?

Can anybody find the loophole language in the law that allows this unilateral change?

This sounds like more taxpayer funding without Congressional action?

Now, in states that have experienced technical problems with their Obamacare websites, some consumers can get tax credits for purchasing insurance on the individual market, even outside of the Obamacare marketplace.

The administration quietly issued the health law fix Thursday to help those states. Several Democratic-led states, including Oregon, Maryland, Massachusetts and Hawaii, are still trying to solve website problems that have eclipsed those experienced earlier by the federal site, now largely repaired.
