Oakland-based Kaiser Permanente has extended the deadline to Jan. 15 for receipt of the first month’s premium on a Jan. 1 coverage effective date.

The health organization said payments postmarked Jan.. 15 or submitted by that day will be accepted.

Kaiser also said it is calling new members to inform them about the deadline extension and about the alternative to pay their premium online. Kaiser said the deadline extension is in response to consumer confusion about deadlines related to the federal Affordable Care Act.

Members who completed an application but have not yet received an invoice can still make appointments and receive care.
