Beset by processing delays and customer confusion, two providers operating in the state’s new health insurance exchange have pushed back their due dates for premium payments.

On Tuesday, officials with Anthem Blue Cross of California said the company was pushing back its payment deadline to Jan. 31. Kaiser Permanente set its new payment date for Jan. 22.

Meanwhile, the state exchange said its deadline would remain midnight tonight for those whose coverage with nine other participating insurers begins Jan. 1.
