Hawaii Health Connector

Time is running out for people to sign up for health insurance through President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

For people who do not have health insurance, the deadline is Monday, March 31.

If you do not sign up, you may have to pay a tax penalty.

“It’s $95 for an individual or one percent of the adjusted gross income. So depending on how much you make, it could be substantial,” State Insurance Commissioner Gordon Ito said.

The deadline will not be extended past March 31.

People can sign up through HMSA,Kaiser or the Hawaii Health Connector website.
