Haven't gotten covered for 2015? Tuesday, December 23, is the last day to purchase a qualified health plan through Washington's insurance marketplace for coverage starting on Jan. 1. The deadline to sign up is at 5 pm. 

Despite technical glitches on Washington Healthplanfinder — including one that erroneously cancelled about 6,000 customer accounts — more than 55,000 people have signed up for or renewed their health insurance using the website. 

Visit to enroll in or renew your coverage. For questions or assistance enrolling, call customer support at 1-855-923-4633. Remember: the penalty this year for opting out of coverage is $325 per adult or 2 percent of taxable income, whichever is greater.

Open enrollment ends on Feb. 15.
