Although the deadline to register for health care insurance under the Affordable Care Act was on Tuesday, HealthCare.gov announced it would be extending the deadline to Thursday, Dec. 17.
This applies to individuals who want their coverage to start by Jan.1, 2016.
CEO Kevin Counihan released the following statement:
Those who miss the deadline will stay have the chance to get insurance through the Affordable Care Act for 2015 if they register by the end of January. However, this means that their coverage will also begin later in the year.
