Time Extended For HealthCare.gov Deadline

(Washington, DC) -- Time is being extended for people trying to sign up for health insurance on the federal website. The deadline to sign up for mandatory coverage is now December 23rd, eight days later than the original deadline. The administration also confirmed it will push back the open enrollment season for health insurance by a month in 2015. Republicans accuse the White House of imposing the delay for political purposes, putting the open enrollment after the 2014 midterm elections.
