DeKALB – Local residents may still have time to sign up for coverage in the new health care law even with an expired deadline.

Those who were able to create an account using the Health Insurance Marketplace before the March 31 deadline can still enroll for health care by visiting and confirming that they tried to enroll before the deadline, according to a DeKalb County Health Department news release.

Residents who were unsuccessful creating an account may visit to answer some questions and enroll. Information on using coverage also is available on the website.

DeKalb County Health Department, 2550 N. Annie Glidden Road, DeKalb, also is helping residents enroll for health care. To schedule an appointment with a DeKalb County Health Department in-person counselor call 815-748-2404.
