WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A glitch in the Affordable Care Act could actually wind up giving smokers a big break.

Insurers have been notified about a computer system glitch that will limit the penalties companies may charge smokers.

A fix will take at least a year to take effect.

Starting in 2014, the law requires insurance companies to accept all applicants, regardless of pre-existing medical problems.

It does, however, allow them to charge smokers up to 50 percent higher premiums--a way for insurers to ward off bad risks.
