Monday last day to sign up for Obamacare January coverage

BIRMINGHAM - AL -

Monday is the last day to sign up for an Obamacare plan if you want health insurance coverage by January 1, 2014.

Those who want their coverage to start New Year's Day will also have to pay their first month's premium by December 31, 2013.

If you don't mind having an insurance plan start after Jan. 1, you can enroll anytime until March 31, 2014. That's when open enrollment ends and penalties for the uninsured kick-in.

"I'm finding in New York, our exchange is working," Sen. Charles Schumer said. "We have competition on it, the website is good. People are saying 'Wow, I am getting better care at a lower cost'. I think that's going to preface what's happening throughout the country."

Schumer acknowledged that the federal enrollment website had problems, but says it just needs time to work.
