Wisconsin prepares for health insurance deadline

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The deadline under the Affordable Care Act is here, and health insurance enrollment counselors across Wisconsin are prepared for a lot of activity Monday.

The open enrollment deadline is at 11 p.m. in Wisconsin for most people to purchase insurance coverage under the federal law championed by President Barack Obama.

Job centers and other locations have people on hand to help with the enrollment process across Wisconsin on Monday to deal with the expected rush.

Meeting the deadline means avoiding financial penalties on 2014 federal taxes. After Monday's deadline, only people with limited special circumstances will be able to get coverage that meets the federal law's requirements.
