DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA -

More South Georgians are getting up to sign up for Obamacare.

More than a dozen people showed up to ask questions and learn how to register for insurance under the Affordable Care Act during an informational meeting in downtown Albany Friday.

It was hosted by a health navigator who was hired through a federal grant.  She's one of 20 traveling around the state to help people get insurance.

"A lot of people are ignorant, me being one of those people, about the cost of the Obamacare or Affordable Care Act.  And I feel like this was very valuable and important for me to gain that understanding," said Jasmine Shavers, a graduate student.

Open enrollment ends March 31st.
