Monday Is Last Day To Sign Up For Health Insurance

MIAMI (AP) — Monday is the last day to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Federal health officials say had a record 1.2 million visitors Saturday and 270,000 callers. The website had glitches all week as consumers rushed to sign up before the deadline, but the problems are minor compared to the botched rollout in October.

Consumers who started their application but ran into problems will be granted an extension.

Florida has led the way among the 36 states relying on the federal exchange, with more than 440,000 enrollees. Federal officials say more than 6 million have signed up for health coverage, meaning the administration met its scaled back goal a few days early.

Those without health insurance face a fine of $95 or 1 percent of their income.
