Those without health insurance have about a week and a half to enroll if they want to avoid a fine on their income taxes next year. Certified Application Counselor with the Richland based non-profit River Hills Community Health Center, Eric Greiner, recommends checking to see if you’re eligible for premium tax credits, cost sharing, or free insurance through Medicaid.

He explains a family of four with an income of less than $33,000 may be able to get Medicaid, while a family of the same size bringing in under $59,000 annually could get a premium tax credit.

As for Healthcare.gov itself, Greiner says the major problems are gone, but every once in a while a user will still get kicked off.
