Covered California extends enrollment deadline
SACRAMENTO (KUSI) – Covered California announced an extension of the first major deadline to have health insurance starting Jan. 1.
The extension is in response to a surge of interest in enrollment and to ensure consumers have ample time to enroll amid news reports of a legal ruling on the Affordable Care Act, according to Covered California. The announcement comes on the final day of the federal open enrollment period, and hours after a Texas United States Court District Court Judge declared the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional.
The original deadline was midnight on Dec. 15.
