CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada's insurance commissioner is trying to weigh the ramifications of President Obama's announcement that people who had their health insurance policies canceled will be allowed to continue them for one more year.

Commissioner Scott Kipper says rescinding cancellation notices that have already gone out to about 24,600 Nevadans might be easier said than done.

He says his office has been conferring with commissioners around the country as well as with major carriers to try to determine what steps would need to be taken.

Obama announced changes to his health reform law Thursday, giving carriers and states the option to keep offering consumers plans that would otherwise be canceled.

One big question is whether policies that were priced under a different set of rules can be re-rated for the upcoming year.

Wake up people!! This man's fix is 100% ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!!! The insurance companies are just following the law as WRITTEN in canceling those polices that do not conform to the law. Obama CANNOT wave his hand and say you can keep your old policy, That is CHANGING the law and ONLY congress can do that. By letting him do that it is setting a VERY dangerous precedent. It is giving him ultimate rule also known as a dictator and no need to go through congress. He needs to be impeached immediately and tried for treason and executed.
