Have trouble signing up on the insurance marketplace during open enrollment?
The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on Monday said it was extending the open enrollment deadline to Wednesday at 3 a.m. ET, and the extended sign-up period starts Monday at 3 p.m. ET. The last day of open enrollment is always the busiest, with hundreds of thousands of people going online or trying to reach the call center. Created by the Affordable Care Act, the marketplace serves people who don't qualify for Medicaid because they earn too much money and can't get coverage through their employer.
A group founded by former Obama administration officials said people using the website and the call center ran into delays and other problems.
