Healthcare sign-up deadline extended
WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is giving more time for people to complete applications for health insurance, if they had already started the process.
Health and Human Service spokesman Aaron Albright said the administration will be ready to help people "in line" by the March 31 deadline finish their applications, either online or over the phone.
The White House hinted last week that a grace period was being considered.
The administration wants to sign up at least 6 million people in the new health insurance markets.
