In Mass. Insurance Deadline Extended for Many
In part that’s because Massachusetts already has the highest percentage of insured residents in the country.
Another reason for Monday’s less frenzied pace is the state’s troubled health care website. Health care officials have pushed back until April 15 the sign-up deadline for those who have run into technical problems.
Despite the troubles, officials say they’ve managed to expand coverage to more uninsured Massachusetts residents, beating the federal target enrollment number of 250,000 by signing up an additional 15,000 above the goal.
Many of those newly enrolled were seeking subsidized care and had to be placed into a transitional coverage program.
