Court hands victory to Obamacare navigators

The Hill, January 24, 2014
A federal judge ruled Thursday that states refusing to run their own health insurance marketplaces under ObamaCare cannot impose additional requirements on the law's enrollment counselors. The decision from the Missouri-based U.S. district court applies to a state law that limited what ObamaCare "navigators" could say when providing advice about health insurance. The law also imposed additional licensing requirements on the workers. Judge Ortrie D. Smith argued that Missouri ceded its ability to create these rules when it allowed federal health officials to construct and operate its ObamaCare insurance marketplace.
