SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakotans who don’t have health insurance have until Sunday to sign up to ensure they receive coverage in 2016.

The third enrollment season for President Barack Obama’s signature health care law began in November. It ends January 31st.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says over 24,000 people in South Dakota have so far selected plans or have been automatically re-enrolled.

About 88 percent of those choosing plans have been deemed eligible for financial assistance.

Nationwide, about 8.9 million people have signed up for the first time or re-enrolled in coverage since the third enrollment period began.

Those who sign up by Sunday will avoid a penalty on their taxes when they file next year.
