Covered California extends enrollment deadline
Sacramento Business Journal

Covered California will allow consumers to apply for health coverage from Feb. 23 to April 30 if they claim to have been unaware of the new tax penalty for foregoing insurance, the health benefit exchange announced Friday.

Covered California announced its special enrollment period following news this week that the exchange fell about 300,000 signups short of its 1.7 million person goal. The original open enrollment period went from Nov. 15 to Feb. 15.
