A spring blizzard moving into South Dakota could make residents' last-ditch efforts to sign up for health care difficult as the deadline approaches.
The open enrollment period for health insurance ends at 11 p.m. CDT Monday.
Insurers and advocates are encouraging residents who may miss their appointment with an insurance counselor or sales representative to call a federal hotline and stay on the line as long as necessary until they're prompted to leave their contact information.
The hotline is 1-800-318-2596. People who leave their information at that phone number will be contacted at a later time and will be allowed to be enrolled.
Deb Muller with Avera Health Plans says the group's sales representatives are experiencing an influx of calls.
Enrollment numbers show that 6,765 South Dakotans have picked plans.
