There's still time to enroll in health coverage under the Affordable Health Care Act.

Albany Area Primary Health Care Outreach and Enrollment officials held their second annual Community Family Day event at the Bill Miller Community Center to help people learn more about different health care plans.

The Westover High School Marching Band and Lincoln Elementary Magnet School Choir also performed. Albany Police, Walmart's Vision Center and other representatives were  also there.

"Currently we've assisted over four thousand individuals and assisting means we've given out brochures and educating anybody that comes to us and asks us questions and different events that we put on to talk about the health insurance market place,” said Clifton Bush, Chief Operating Officer. “We've enrolled over 100 individuals."

The deadline to sign up under the affordable health care act is February 15th.
