Nearly 1 million residents sign up with Covered California as health care deadline looms
Los Angeles Daily News

With a March 31 deadline approaching and $100 million already spent on marketing, Covered California officials announced Thursday that more than 900,000 state residents have enrolled in health plans through the exchange since October.

The figure was more than projected but officials said it still wasn’t good enough. The announcement was made near Olvera Street where a Covered California rally had been organized to urge community leaders to keep reaching out to all who are eligible and tell them sign up online, in person or by phone for health care by the federal Affordable Care Act’s deadline.
