Extension website offers help as ACA deadline nears
URBANA - The deadline to enroll for health insurance through federal or state health exchanges is fast approaching.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), March 31 is the last day for open enrollment for marketplace insurance plans for 2014. University of Illinois Extension wants to help residents of Illinois better understand the ACA and how it affects them.

The Affordable Care Act in Illinois is a website developed by Extension specialists Laura Payne and Chelsey Byers to provide "unbiased factual information related to the (ACA) law in order to help individuals make educated and informed decisions."

A variety of features on the website provide this information. Perhaps the most entertaining is the short video "Health Reform Hits Main Street." Narrated by Cokie Roberts, the video offers a fast-paced overview of the problems that precipitated the ACA and its proposed solutions. To enroll in an insurance plan, visit the state's website, Get Covered Illinois. If you have other questions or would like to talk with an Extension specialist, contact Laura Payne at 217-244-7038,, or Chelsey Byers at 217-333-7872,
