Health Insurers Extend Deadline for February Premiums, Too
KQED Radio

Covered California says that yesterday was the deadline to pay your February premiums. But some of California’s biggest insurers have extended their deadlines. 

A colleague told me yesterday that her husband had spent 2 and a half hours on hold trying to pay his February Kaiser premium, then got cut off and was on hold for another 2 hours. When he finally got through, the operator told him the payment deadline had been extended. He said he asked her why Kaiser didn’t put that information in its recording that people listen to when they’re on hold.
