LANSING, Mich. – (WLNS)
Governor Whitmer is now asking the Trump administration to extend the open enrollment period for the 2021 health insurance market-place until the end of January 2021.
She says that extra time would be useful for people who lost their employer insurance during the on-going pandemic.
Right now, open enrollment is scheduled to run from November 1 through December 15 and this request adds roughly 45 days.
A new report from the National Center for Coverage Innovation found that Michigan experienced a 46% increase in the number of uninsured adults from February to May 2020.
