BOSTON (AP) — Individuals who have enrolled in new health care plans through the Massachusetts Health Connector have a few more days to make their first payments to guarantee coverage starting Feb. 1.
The payment deadline, originally scheduled for last week, has now been pushed back until Friday, due in part to the storm enveloping the region.
The storm is also forcing the shutdown of the connector’s call center offices in Boston and Worcester on Tuesday. Those seeking information can still call the connector’s hotline on Tuesday for information on applications and payments.
Last Friday was the deadline to enroll in a plan for Feb. 1.
A final sign-up deadline is Feb. 15, the end of the open enrollment period. That’s the deadline for picking and paying for a plan for March 1.
