This weekend, California’s Obamacare exchange extended the deadline for the first month’s premium payment by another week.
The state exchange had already extended the deadline to Monday, January 6.
“Covered California” announced the news as news outlets across California started reporting on residents who were unsure if they actually successfully enrolled in Obamacare or still had trouble finishing their applications because of website malfunctions. Many residents reported being “stuck” in the middle of the application process and not being able to get answers about whether their information had been successfully transmitted to insurance companies.
#CoveredCA health plans have extended the deadline for the first month’s payment to Jan. 15.
