ACA deadline Monday - Tucson News Now

ACA deadline Monday

People who want to sign up for the Affordable Care Act before the deadline to avoid a penalty have seven days left.

Those not signing up before Monday, 9:00 pm Tucson time will be assessed a penalty for not doing so.

It's $95 or 1% of income for an individual.

The Affordable Care Act is the medical insurance program passed by Congress and signed by the President in 2010 to insure America's 47 million uninsured.

More than five million have signed up since October, when the sign up phase began.

Millions of others have become insured on expanded Medicaid.

Tucson's Urban League is still taking individual appointments and will throughout the week.

It will hold computer classes to encourage multiple sign ups beginning Wednesday at 4:00 pm.

People can sign up by going to the web site, healthcare.gov
