ACA 2016 Deadline Approaching

CHARLOTTE, NC — If you want healthcare coverage starting January first, you have until Tuesday to sign up.

Health and Human Services secretary Sylvia Burwell visited a Charlotte barbershop today to talk about the upcoming Affordable Care Act deadline. More than 192,000 people have already signed up for coverage in North Carolina.

“So right now in open enrollment, we have a lot more work to do,” said Burwell. “Which is why I’m in Charlotte today and will be in Texas this weekend. So we have work to do, but so far, consumers are coming in.”

You can still sign up after Tuesday, but your coverage won’t kick in until February first.
