Some scrambling to meet health insurance deadline

Posted by wlpo on February 14, 2015

CHICAGO (AP) – A telephone help line is getting thousands of calls ahead of an important deadline under President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Sunday is the final day for signing up for private health insurance coverage for 2015 under the law. Organizers say the Get Covered Illinois help desk has been fielding nearly 5,000 calls each day this week. Hours will be extended over the weekend to answer questions if you want to enroll in a health plan.

The health care law offers subsidized private coverage to people who don’t have access to it on the job.
