ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Officials of Minnesota’s health insurance exchange say their call center is standing ready to help people seeking to beat a deadline for signing up to get coverage before the new year.

Callers to the MNsure call center have struggled with long wait times, but spokeswoman Jenni Bowring-McDonough says it’s open until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The call center will also be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on New Year’s Day. But Tuesday was the deadline to sign up for coverage that starts Jan. 1.
