How 2 Update Info

As of January 9th, just over 17,000 South Dakotans had enrolled in private health insurance plans through the state health insurance exchange. The deadline for people to sign up for through the Marketplace Open Enrollment is February 15th. People who don’t have health insurance from elsewhere and don’t enroll by that date could be locked out of the market for the rest of the year. They could also face penalties when they file their taxes. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services operates the Health Insurance Marketplace for South Dakota and other states without their own exchanges. Gloria Baca from the centers' regional Denver office joined Dakota Midday and discussed the enrollment process.

Here is the full interview with Gloria Baca:
