Affordable Healthcare open enrollment begins

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Saturday, November 15 marks the beginning of open enrollment for Affordable Healthcare.

Plenty of people came out to New Hope Baptist Church in Jackson to sign up. We're told the system is streamlined this year, and people will find it easier to log on and make their selections. Enrollment before December 15 ensures that your coverage will start by January 1.

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber was on hand with other city leaders, taking part in an exhibition basketball game to encourage others to participate in Affordable Healthcare. 

"Our President has created a situation where we have a chance to see 300,000 Mississippians covered. Right now there's only just over 60,000. So we have to do a better job of that," Mayor Yarber says.

We're told the deadline to sign up for 2015 is February 15.
