A Last-Minute Push for Health Care in New Jersey

Monday, December 23, 2013

Today is the deadline for people to enroll in health care coverage that begins Jan. 1.

About 900,000 uninsured New Jersey residents are estimated to be eligible for coverage through the new law. But after computer glitches and confusion, only a few thousand people signed up over the past two months. Now navigators and health care assistants are rushing to enroll people before time runs out.

Not everyone who signed up for new health insurance will do so via the healthcare.gov, so don't use that as the only reference for numbers. For example, I sued it to find policies but I used the health insurer's own website to apply. Count me and my husband as 2 NJers who signed up for a family plan.
