Hawaii and Washington, D.C., are giving their residents two more weeks to seek private health coverage under Obamacare, once again extending the deadline for consumers who had a hard time on the state-run insurance portals.

Like the federal government and many of the states that ran their own health exchanges, the Hawaii Health Connector and D.C. Health Link each gave consumers who were “in line” by March 31 a couple of weeks to finish picking a health plan. Their initial grace periods would have ended Tuesday.

Both exchanges said April 30 will be the new drop-dead deadline.

“Over the past several weeks, the Connector team has been reaching out to assist those with completing their enrollment,” Tom Matsuda, the Hawaii exchange’s interim executive director, said. “This will be the last chance for many individuals and families to enroll.”
