Today is the Deadline for Affordable Care Act

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Today is the final day to sign up for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act, or ACA. Most Americans who are not covered either by private insurance or an ACA account face a tax penalty if they miss today's deadline. Officials say if you get hung up with technical problems, do not worry. Anyone who starts an application by today but is unable to finish will receive extra time. The government says six-million Americans have signed up since last October's rocky rollout of the healthcare.gov website.
