The Obama administration has extended the deadline for signing up for health care coverage until midnight Tuesday.

"Anticipating high demand and the fact that consumers may be enrolling from multiple time zones, we have taken steps to make sure that those who select a plan through tomorrow will get coverage for Jan 1,” CMS spokesman Julie Bataille said in a statement Monday.

An administration official added that,"We have programmed our systems to support January 1 coverage for those who attempt to complete their enrollment through the end of the day tomorrow proactively recognizing that we need to be prepared to handle heavy online traffic or other technical issues.”
