December 23 is the deadline to enroll for health insurance coverage that starts on January 1, 2014. In the last-minute rush to make the cutoff, nearly 50,000 people signed up through Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, in the first week of December alone. Are you a college graduate no longer on your parents’ insurance? A freelancer or business owner who doesn’t have a company plan? Are you unsure if you’re eligible for the expanded version of Medi-Cal? We take your questions about Obamacare and signing up for coverage in California.
