Deadline fuels new enrollment at Covered California
Sacramento Business Journal

New enrollment at Covered California jumped 69 percent in the last week, as uninsured residents scrambled to meet today’s deadline for coverage to start Jan. 1. More than 57,000 consumers signed up for coverage between Dec. 7 and Dec. 13, pushing new enrollment for 2016 coverage to over 140,000, the state health benefit exchange announced Monday. Open enrollment extends through Jan. 31, but consumers must sign up by midnight Dec. 15 if they want coverage to start on New Year’s Day.
