The Desert Sun

The Obama administration extended the March 31 deadline for open enrollment under the Affordable Care Act late Tuesday, just after Rep. Raul Ruiz sent a letter urging Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to extend it.

The administration said those who had started an application by the date but were unable to finish it would have a limited amount of time to enroll for insurance starting May 1.
