Helen Heinlo smokes in June 2007 outside of a coffee shop in Belmont, Calif. Some smokers trying to get coverage in 2014 under President Barack Obama's health care law may get a break from tobacco-use penalties that could have made their premiums unaffordable. The Obama administration has quietly notified insurers that a computer system glitch will limit penalties that the law says the companies may charge smokers. A fix will take at least a year to put in place. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File)
