Obamacare Enrollment Adds Today to Complete the Process
December 24, 2013 — By AP Chicago
Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
That’s the advice of federal officials in charge of the health care overhaul. It comes on the day that was supposed to be the deadline for signing up for health insurance and getting coverage by January 1.
Officials have now extended that deadline through today to accommodate only those enrollees who started the enrollment process prior to today, including yesterday when enrollment phone and online access was heavy.
The federal HealthCare.gov system serves 36 states. Some other states have also extended enrollment deadlines slightly.
