While the dead­line in most states to en­roll in cov­er­age be­gin­ning Jan. 1 is Dec. 23, many in­surers have ex­ten­ded premi­um pay­ment dead­lines past the first of the year, to give con­sumers a bit more time. For the 36 states on the fed­er­al ex­change, the new dead­line to pay premi­ums for cov­er­age be­gin­ning Jan. 1 is Jan. 10. The 14 states (plus the Dis­trict of Columbia) that are run­ning their own ex­changes have dif­fer­ent premi­um dead­lines, ran­ging from Dec. 23 to Jan. 15.
