The Obama administration is seeking to clarify penalty rules for people who delay signing up for coverage under Obama care. Simply put: People who wait until the end of the initial enrollment period -- up to March 31 -- will not be penalized. The Obama administration is preparing legal guidance to address a confusion of dates in the new law, which says people must sign up by the 15th of one month to receive coverage on the 1st of the next month. That is not the case, the White House says.
