Final day to sign up for insurance through healthcare.gov

Posted: Updated:

Monday is the last day of March and it's also the last day to sign up for insurance through healthcare dot gov.

KSFY News spoke with healthcare navigators about the March 31st deadline.

They are still taking calls and they may get a lot of them Monday if people can't get online.

But this past weekend, people who waited until now have kept the marketplace busy.

It's been a busy time for the people who navigate others through the healthcare marketplace.

Healthcare navigator Emily Gross said "people still continue to call in and ask questions and we're doing the best that we can to answer those questions and get as many people enrolled as we can."

And while the deadline to enroll is upon us, the work of a healthcare navigator is not done after March 31st.

"We will all still be here, still continue to take phone calls even after that March 31st deadline. So we are still here, open for questions and anything that we can do to better assist consumers," Gross said.

Many navigators like Emily may breathe a sigh of relief once the deadline passes.

"I just  did it actually. Yeah, it's been very, very hectic getting everybody in, especially the past few weeks it's been crazy, but it's a lot of fun to help these people," Gross said.

If you can't get online to healthcare.gov, you may also call the marketplace at 1-800-318-2596.
