December 16, 2015 Extends Deadline through Dec 17th, 2015 for coverage beginning Jan 1, 2016

The deadline to sign-up for January 1 coverage has been extended until 11:59pm PST December 17.

Because of the unprecedented demand and volume of consumers contacting our call center or visiting, we are extending the deadline to sign-up for January 1 coverage until 11:59pm PST December 17. Hundreds of thousands have already selected plans over the last two days and approximately 1 million consumers have left their contact information to hold their place in line.  Our goal is to provide access to affordable coverage, and the additional 48 hours will give consumers an opportunity to come back and complete their enrollment for January 1 coverage.

IMPORTANT: If consumers enroll in a health insurance plan through or the Marketplace Call Center by 11:59 p.m. December 17th Pacific Standard Time, coverage will start January 1, 2016.
