Health care navigators and providers are reaching out to the public as the March 31 deadline for the state Health Exchange approaches. North Carolinians who are uninsured must enroll through the Health Insurance Marketplace by the end of next month.
State Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin is taking steps to reduce the number of health insurance cancelations as a result of the Affordable Care Act. More than 473,000 North Carolinians have received notice from their insurance companies that their plans have been terminated.
