Covered California set Monday as the sign-up deadline and had no current plans to extend that by another day. The Obama administration announced it was extending the sign-up deadline through Tuesday for the 36 states using the federal health insurance exchange.
California runs its own exchange under the federal Affordable Care Act.
Agency spokesman Larry Hicks says the enrollment website has been running smoothly with no technical problems and that Covered California was expecting a heavy volume of users throughout the day.
Those who enroll by the end of Monday will have until Jan. 6 to pay for policies starting in the new year.
