President Joe Biden’s order for a Special Open Enrollment Period for Health Insurance that was started in February has now been expanded from ending May 15th to August 15th according to the website Healthcare.gov.
The extra enrollment period was added to aid people that might not have secured coverage last fall during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
