Local organizations inform community about ACA Enrollment

NORMAL - Enrollment is now open for the Affordable Care Act, but you will notice some changes when signing up.

This year, the Trump Administration shortened the enrollment period by six weeks.

On Thursday, the Bloomington-Normal Voices of Reason gathered to lend a hand, reminding everyone to be aware there is a penalty if you don't have insurance  come tax time.

"I know that the ACA, Obamacare, has been a little controversial, but it still is the "law of the land,"" said Jodie Slothower, Leader of Voices of Reason. "It's still the best that we have."

The deadline for enrollment this year is December 15. To sign up, you can call 1-866-311-1119 or visit, www.getcovered.illinois.gov.
