Covered California adds service hours to beat deadline
Los Angeles Business Journal

Many people may be still shopping for the holidays, but another important rush is coming to a head: the deadline for enrollment in Covered California’s health insurance exchange.

Consumers must pick a plan by Dec. 23, and to help get people enrolled, Covered California is extending its service center hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Dec. 22.

The enrollment date deadline is for coverage beginning Jan. 1, but the health insurance exchange notes that as long as payment is received by Jan. 6, coverage will be retroactive to Jan. 1.
