Covered CA adds 48 hours to early enrollment deadline
San Diego Union-Tribune

A last-minute surge in demand caused the state’s health insurance exchange to add an extra two days to its enrollment deadline Tuesday night, giving Californians until Dec. 17 at 8 p.m. to sign up for coverage that starts on New Years Day.

Covered California, which operates the exchange, first announced that it would keep its phone bank open until midnight Tuesday to deal with a significant increase in the number of potential enrollees calling to request help.
