A “surge” in last-minute sign-ups has given Covered California more than 1.2 million on its rolls less than a day before the March 31 midnight deadline, officials said late Monday morning.

Nearly 1.21 million Californians had signed up as of 2 a.m. March 31, officials said, with 156,000 new sign-ups since March 24. An ebullient Peter Lee, Covered California’s CEO, noted that the health exchange has “set records on accounts created five of the last six days.”
