There is no extended deadline. Huh?

December 24th, 2013 just tweeted that there is no extended deadline to sign.


I’m confused now. The Hill reports somewhat contradictory information:

Monday was supposed to be the cutoff date for obtaining insurance coverage that takes effect on Jan. 1, but in the latest delay to the law, the administration said people who have begun the enrollment process would have an extra day to complete it.

Now officials say there’s even more flexibility on the timeline for people who have had trouble enrolling.]

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare spokeswoman Julie Battaile said in an email on Tuesday that consumers that tried and failed to get in before the deadline could contact the call center to petition for leniency.

“We have developed a robust casework process to address individual inquiries, respond to specific situations, and help consumers transition to new coverage,” she said. “Consumers will hear directly from their health plan about the date their coverage is effective.”

I can’t even keep track anymore.
