USA Today

Federal officials late Tuesday extended the deadline for consumers to sign up for health insurance on the federal site until 11:59 PM Dec. 17 due to “unprecedented demand.”

The additional two days from the previous Dec. 15 deadline will allow consumers in the 38 states that use to sign up for plans that take effect Jan. 1. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services granted similar extensions during the last two open enrollments.
