In response to If you like your health insurance, you can go screw yourself: The fix is in. Last year, on December 15, I signed up for non-ACA health insurance after moving to a new state; I’ve just been notified it will end in December. The transitional policy fix appears to only apply to policies in effect as of October 1, 2013.
