Get Covered Illinois Volunteers Going Door-to-Door with Health Care Information

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Don't be surprised if you get a knock on the door over the next few days. The Get Covered America group is going door to door to help us get signed up for health care coverage.

Volunteers went door to door in Rockford neighborhoods looking for people without insurance. They're spreading the word about the different ways we can enroll, and making sure we know the deadlines.

March 15 is the last day to enroll if we want our coverage to start April 1, but March 31 is the deadline if we want health insurance in 2014.

"People really need to start thinking about you know, when they're going to enroll, how they're going to enroll, if it’s going to be online or through a certified application counselor," Get Covered America Field Organizer Crystal Miller, said.

Get Covered Illinois is hosting an enrollment workshop on Tuesday at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. It runs from 10am until 9pm.
