Good News: HC.gov offering "callback" policy after all...

The other day it was reported that unlike prior years, HealthCare.Gov would not be offering any type of "In Line By Midnight" grace period this year for people who start their ACA application today but aren't able to complete it in time for whatever reason.

Apparently that isn't quite the case...

It's busy at our call center today! If you call and are asked to leave your name and phone number, please do so. A call center rep will call you back after Dec 15 to make sure you have Marketplace coverage that starts Jan 1. You may also visit https://t.co/eTfU7hBbyh to enroll.

Good, although this isn't necessarily the same thing; it might only apply to people with special circumstances or whatever. Still, it's a good thing.

Still better to #GetCovered by midnight, though...

UPDATE: Just in case there was any doubt...

Sorry, no extension. But if you call the Call Center and it asks for your name/number please do so. A representative will call you back after tonight and make sure you get coverage starting Jan 1. 800-318-2596
