Sunday is Obamacare deadline

The Department of Health and Human Services says that final Open Enrollment deadline to sign up for 2015 coverage is this Sunday, February 15. 

For people who still need to get covered for 2015, the time is now to take action.

To date, millions of Americans have already signed up for affordable, high quality health coverage through the Marketplace.

"Health coverage provides access to primary care providers and just health coverage. It's so important to take care of our bodies and our well being," said Kimberly Scott of the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia.

There is choice and competition in the Marketplace. This year, there are 25% more health insurance issuers competing in the Marketplace for your business. Financial help is available. Nearly 8 out of 10 current consumers can find coverage for $100 or less a month with tax credits through HealthCare.gov

It's easier than ever. The consumer experience at HealthCare.gov is simpler, faster, and more intuitive. So if you still need health care coverage for 2015 - visit HealthCare.gov today and sign up for 2015 coverage.

Already have health insurance? Take a moment and share this message with a friend, a family member or a neighbor.

We all have a role to play to make sure as many Americans as possible have the peace of mind that comes from quality, affordable health insurance.
