If you haven’t signed up yet for coverage under the new health care law, you still have time to do so.
The deadline to sign up for coverage to take effect Jan. 1, 2014, was earlier this week. But for Arkansans who missed that deadline, you still have until March 31, 2014, to enroll online or by phone.
Go to http://www.healthcare.gov to sign up online, or call 1-800-318-2596 to enroll by phone.
Your coverage will start as soon as Feb. 1 if you choose a plan and pay before mid-January.
