North Carolinians who want to sign up for insurance through the federal exchange have a few more days to do so.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced Monday that the deadline for open enrollment has been extended through 3:00 AM on December 18.

A CMS spokesperson said this is due to issues that some experienced during the final hours of enrollment this weekend.

There are four insurance providers offering plans in the state for next year including Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, Cigna, Ambetter of North Carolina Inc., and Bright Health, which is a new provider for 2020.
