Covered California is reminding folks that the April 15th deadline to complete an application is just days away.

The state's health insurance exchange received a flood of last minute applications both online and over the phone in the final days leading up to the original March 31st deadline - causing issues with the website.

If you weren't able to get through because of a technical issue, you're urged to contact Covered California to qualify for the April 15th deadline.

Anyone who completed at least the first page of the application by March 31st is also eligible for the extension.
