Most Southern Calif. Insurers Extend Deadline for Paying First Month’s Premium for Exchange Health Plans
Five of the six insurers in Southern California that offer plans through Covered California have extended the deadline for consumers to pay their first month's premium. Anthem Blue Cross, HealthNet and Molina Healthcare extended their deadline to Jan. 31. Meanwhile, L.A. Care Health Plan is giving consumers until Jan. 28, and Kaiser Permanente extended its deadline to Jan. 22. Blue Shield was the only insurer that did not offer such an extension.
