Hawaii exchange joins VT & MN in extending deadline until New Year's Eve
Huh. OK, this one is unexpected, mainly because they waited until 4 days after the original 12/15 deadline to make the announcement:
The Hawaii Health Connector has extended the deadline for residents to enroll in health insurance that takes effect on Jan. 1.
The extension will be until noon on Dec. 31. The original deadline was this past Monday.
The state's health insurance exchange created by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, signed up 3,500 residents in the first month of open enrollment , which started on Nov. 15. To enroll, call 1-877-628-5076 or go to www.hawaiihealthconnector.com.
So, that makes 3 states now which have bumped their deadline for January 1st coverage out until 12/31: Hawaii, Vermont and Minnesota.
