Minnesota's health insurance marketplace is extending by one week its deadline for signing up for coverage that takes effect on the first of the new year.
    
The new interim CEO of MNsure says Friday that a Monday deadline for signing up will be extended to Dec. 31. That means people will be able to enroll right up to the day before the insurance takes effect. In addition, MNsure leader Scott Leitz says people will have until Jan. 10 to pay for their coverage.
    
Leitz announced the postponed deadline in a live interview on Minnesota Public Radio News.
    
In the interview, Leitz says all MNsure enrollees may not have insurance cards by Jan. 1 but that the agency is working on ways they can prove their coverage to doctors and hospitals.
