Health exchange deadline approaches
San Diego Union-Tribune

Hurry up already.

That was the message delivered Tuesday by Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange.

Lee said with only slightly more than a month left for the open-enrollment period, at least 300,000 Californians have not selected a plan on the exchange even though they qualify to do so. Failure to sign up can result in a financial penalty come tax time.
