The announcement today, March 26, that the deadline for purchasing your health insurance can be extended is very limited. For the most part, people should know that the last day to purchase their coverage is Monday the 31st.

An extension COULD be available for people who meet these conditions.

Administration officials said this move, similar to the one in December for the large number of people who were trying to sign up by January 1, will accommodate people who face special circumstances or complex cases and need extra time to complete their enrollment.

The officials said those who fall in this category will have to attest to their circumstances as part of the application process. They refused to say how much more time these people will get to finish enrollment and still qualify for coverage this year.
