Insurance sign-up deadline today

Ponca City Now - December 15, 2014 6:35 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A key deadline has arrived for thousands of uninsured Oklahomans who are seeking coverage under the federal health care law.

Monday marks the last day to purchase insurance plans through the federally operated health marketplace set up under the Affordable Care Act for those who want benefits to begin with the new year. In Oklahoma, 69,221 people selected a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace plan between Oct. 1, 2013, and the end of a special enrollment period on April 19.

Open enrollment began in November and ends Feb. 15. Residents can enroll in the health marketplace and renew or change their plans during this period.

Oklahomans can still sign up for coverage after Monday, but it will take effect later.
