Blue Cross Blue Shield North Dakota is pushing more people to get on health insurance.
In typical years, Blue Cross ND has its open enrollment period to sign up, renew and or change policies from November to December, but now they are extending open enrollment to Aug. 15.

“I’ve seen some very, very interesting deals where the government has set people up with extremely low to no premium for great coverage,” Jim Nichols said.
