Healthcare.gov announced today that they will extend the deadline to sign-up for health coverage beginning January 1, 2016 until December 17th. Because of the high demand and volume of consumers contacting the Marketplace, Healthcare.gov wants to ensure that all consumers have the opportunity to complete their enrollment. They have also, once again, launched the “waiting room” option where consumers are being asked to leave their contact information so they do not have to stay on the line for long periods of time. Consumers will then receive a call back to complete the enrollment process and have their coverage begin on January 1.
