WASHINGTON - The Obama administration said Friday that it would delay the 2015 insurance enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act by a month, pushing it beyond the 2014 elections. The decision means that people who have not signed up for insurance by the end of March will generally have to wait until Nov. 15, 2014, to apply. The second enrollment period was previously scheduled to begin on Oct. 15, 2014.  The administration said insurers would get an extra month to set their rates and file applications for health plans to be sold in 2015. The White House press secretary, Jay Carney, said the delay would help insurers evaluate their experience in 2014 and use it to set rates for 2015. "This gives them more time to assess the pool of people who are getting insurance through the marketplaces and make decisions about what rates will look like in the coming year," he said.
