Organization Hopes More Sign Up For Obamacare

Posted: Updated:

The deadline to sign up for the Affordable Care Act is just 11 days away.

The state has more than 5,200 people signed up for Obamacare, the least amount in the country. Even with the low numbers, the Department of Health and Human Services is optimistic.

"In North Dakota there is momentum. People wanted to get good information before they started signing up. And I think by the end of the enrollment period which is March 31, we're going to have a good number of North Dakota residents that have taken advantage of health insurance coverage and found out about the financial assistance," says Kim Fillan of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

There will be people on hand at the First Presbyterian Church on Thayer in Bismarck until 8 p.m. and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for more information visit www.healthcare.gov.
