Deadlines quickly approaching for state health insurance benefits

Those who have lost health insurance benefits as a result of the pandemic may want to start applying. Deadlines are quickly approaching to sign up for no, or low cost health insurance for those who have lost it due to layoffs, reduced hours, or a change in income.

Residents are required to sign up for health insurance within 60 days of having their benefits altered. For those impacted within the first few weeks of the virus, this deadline is approaching quickly.
