Santa Rosa Press Democrat

The state’s health insurance marketplace, Covered California, has extended the deadline for residents trying to obtain individual medical coverage beginning next year.

People who initiated the Covered California application process by the original deadline of Dec. 15 will have until Sunday to complete the process and pick a health plan, state health officials said Tuesday. Health coverage will still begin Jan. 1 for those who meet the new deadline.
