March 31, 2014- The deadline to enroll in health coverage provided by the Affordable Care Act is today.

Most Americans who are *not* covered either by private insurance or an Affordable Care Act account face a tax penalty if they miss today's deadline.
Officials say if you get hung up with technical problems, don't worry; anyone who starts an application by today but is unable to finish will get until next Monday to complete the process.

The government says six million Americans have signed up since last October's rocky roll out of the website.
