ANCHORAGE — More Alaskans were signing up for the government health care plan as the deadline for coverage on Jan. 1 loomed.
More than 700 people had signed up by Tuesday morning with help from Enroll Alaska, which was created to help individuals enroll and understand their options.
The deadline to secure coverage by New Year’s Day was Monday, but was extended a day.
“I would say yesterday was a pretty busy day,” Enroll Alaska chief operating officer Tyann Boling said Tuesday morning. “We’re doing quite a bit today, also.”
