TRENTON, NJ Uninsured New Jerseyans now have until May 15 to sign up for health care coverage through Get Covered New Jersey, the states official health insurance marketplace.

Gov. Phil Murphy extended the deadline, which was expected to end on January 31, after the Biden administration earlier this week reopened enrollment on the federal Affordable Care Act exchange amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Residents can enroll in a health insurance plan through the marketplace or directly from carriers through this extended COVID-19 special enrollment period by visiting Get Covered New Jersey.
