The special enrollment period for health insurance coverage that we told you about a couple of weeks ago has been extended–but you should apply today if you want coverage starting April 1. People can apply through April 30, but anyone who applies for coverage on or after April 4 will have their coverage start May 1.

The original period that was announced on March 19 was set to end on Friday, April 3, but will now continue through the month of April. If you lost your health insurance coverage due to loss of a job or change in hours, you can go to  Connect for Health Colorado to find coverage that works for you today.
