For those who waited until the very last minute to enroll in health insurance, there's some good news: Consumers in all but 3 states have gotten extensions to finish applications they started before yesterday's deadline. Here's a state-by-state guide to the deadline extensions. http://www.healthinsurance.org/blog/2015/02/16/obamacare-enrollment-deadline-extensions/
Open enrollment for 2015 ended last night ... sort of. In all but three states, there's at least some sort of extension. But in most cases, the extension applies to people who tried to enroll by February 15 but couldn't, and most of the extensions only last for about a week. So if you haven't enrolled yet, you might still be able to sign up, but don't delay!
