People who are eligible for coverage through the health insurance exchange have until a week from today to select a plan.
Cover Oregon's Acting Director, Dr. Bruce Goldberg, told the exchange board members on Friday that the deadline to enroll will be extended to January 6th.
Goldberg says coverage will be retroactive to January 1st and that qualified applicants will be able to get their January subsidy too.
The previous enrollment deadline was Friday. The first payment is due by January 15th.
