The White House will create another exemption to Obamacare’s individual mandate, the Washington Post reported.

People who had their insurance plan cancelled as a result of the new healthcare law and who are unable to find a comparably priced plan on the federal or state exchanges will be allowed to claim a “hardship exemption,” and will not face fines for not purchasing insurance. Those persons will also have the option of buying a healthcare plan that does not meet the minimum coverage requirements under Obamacare — known as a “catastrophe plan” — without any penalty.

The change, which Politico reports will be announced tomorrow, comes just four days before the deadline for individuals to purchase insurance. It is the latest alteration to the law prompted by the dysfunctional enrollment website and complaints from many people who discovered that even though they liked their plan, they could not keep it.
