The rollout of the Affordable Care Act continues in Central Illinois.

Employees from area health departments set up shop in Northwoods Mall.

They walked people through the enrollment process because the deadline to sign up is March 31st.

Anyone without coverage by then could face penalties up to $285.

Peoria's Health Department Kelly Stewart is encouraging people to sign up before it's too late.

“We are busy, but we do have space available. We are taking appointments, call your local health department. They'll get them in. Get them taken care of before the deadline.”

Peoria, Fulton, Tazewell, and Woodford County Health Departments took part in the awareness campaign.
