Covered California announced that the deadline to enroll and have coverage start January 1 has now been extended to midnight on December 22.
Consumers may be hearing different dates around open enrollment, especially because deadlines are different in other states. Here are the two most important things to know if you are a California resident:
1. Enroll by December 22, 2017 if you want your health coverage to start January 1, 2018.
2. Enroll by January 31, 2018 — the last day of open enrollment — for health coverage that will start March 1, 2018.
