The deadline for enrolling in health care coverage through the federal marketplace has been extended to 11:59 p.m. PST (1:59 a.m. on December 18 for those in Central Standard Time), according to an alert distributed Wednesday.
The original enrollment deadline was December 15. High demand for enrollment was cited as the reason for the extension. Consumers who wish to enroll should submit an application and choose a plan through HealthCare.gov for coverage beginning January 1, 2016.
