Last-minute rush for Obamacare sign-ups; grace period offered
Orange County Register

Californians bombarded the state insurance exchange’s website Monday to beat a deadline to sign up for Obamacare. In response, Covered California offered a grace period for more people.

The six-month enrollment period technically ended at midnight Monday, but those who started their applications by then have until April 15 to finish. Late in the day, Covered California announced that the two-week extension would also apply to anyone who says they were unable to create an account.
