MA individual mandate predictions

mass connector authorityWe have all read about the problems that the Connector Authority has had with their website. In case you have not, here is a recent Boston Globe story.

The question is how does the Commonwealth of Massachusetts impose a penalty (individual mandate), if the site has not been working that will allow people to enroll, obtain coverage and avoid the penalty?  Personally I do not see how they can.

The first thing I see happening is that the open enrollment period beyond the end of March thru April to give people more time to enroll.

The second thing will be a move to repeal the Commonwealth of Massachusetts individual mandate altogether like they did with their employer mandate.
