REDDING,Calif -

Covered California is still raising questions, many wondering if it’s too late to sign up to get that coverage by January.

The date has changed, now applicants have until Dec. 28 to sign up to be eligible for January coverage.

If you miss the Dec. 28 deadline you can still sign up but won’t be eligible for January coverage.

Margy Wenham, with Wenham Insurance Services said many are having trouble signing up since the website can be confusing.

Wenham said it’s important to be patient since the process can be a long one.

"Once they've enrolled the next step is they need to wait for Covered California to come back and they'll ask them for additional information which will be proof of income and California residency proof," said Wenham.

Once that is turned in applicants will receive a billing notice from their insurance stating coverage won’t go into effect until the bill is paid.
