If you want health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act, and you want it to cover you this year, you need to act by midnight Monday if you haven't already signed up for an extension.
www.healthcare.gov figures to be busy online as millions of people are expected to log on and try to secure coverage. Millions of people have already signed up, but the website had significant issues handling online traffic when it was rolled out last fall and it has had episodic troubles since.
Residents who started to sign up earlier and weren't able to complete their applications can go to www.healthcare.gov and click on a space to get an extension through April 15.
If you have questions, call the Flint Hills Community Health Center-Lyon County Health Department at 342-4864 or go online to www.flinthillshealth.org.
