Because of the unprecedented demand and volume of consumers contacting our call center or visiting HealthCare.gov, we are extending the deadline to sign-up for January 1, 2016 coverage until 11:59 pm PST December 17, 2015.
Hundreds of thousands have already selected plans over the last two days and approximately one 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, 2016 coverage.
If you enroll in a health insurance plan through HealthCare.gov or the Marketplace Call Center by 11:59 p.m. December 17, 2015 Pacific Standard Time, your coverage will start January 1, 2016. If you provided your contact information on the web or at our call center, we'll send you an email or call you when we're ready for you to come back and finish enrolling.
Open Enrollment for 2016 will begin on November 1, 2015.
