It seemed like a good idea at the time…have all plans of a cer­tain size set up a Health Plan Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Num­ber.  But then, the day before it was to go into effect, the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment sus­pend­ed action.  It appears even the sharpest busi­ness peo­ple who tried to sim­ply reg­is­ter a num­ber had too much dif­fi­cul­ty in doing so.  A report was made to the DOL say­ing that it should be set up for addi­tion­al con­sid­er­a­tion.  More ACA delays…
