Health Center-Health Department Navigators still busy fielding Affordable Care Act questions

The deadline for enrolling in health insurance through the Affordable Care Act passed Monday, but Flint Hills Community Health Center-Lyon County Health Department Navigator Valorie Libertus will still be busy.

Libertus says people who missed Monday's deadline and didn't start registering online at www.healthcare.gov will have to wait for specialty events or a life change before they can register. They will also have to pay a penalty -- one percent of your annual income or $95, whichever is greater.

People who started to sign up online but couldn't finish their applications can receive an extension through April 15.

If you have questions about the Affordable Care Act, call Libertus at 342-4864 ext. 3705.
