Calif. health exchange extends payment deadline
Sacramento Bee

The agency running California’s health insurance exchange extended the deadline for payments until Jan. 15 following a surge in the number of consumers signing up for coverage.

Covered California said on its website that health coverage still took effect Jan. 1 but the payment deadline was pushed back to prevent consumers from feeling rushed to pay recently received invoices.

It will also give health care companies more time to process paperwork, the agency said.
