Monday is the deadline to sign up for private health insurance in the new online markets created by President Barack Obama's health care law. So far, about 4 out of every 5 people enrolling have qualified for tax credits to reduce the cost of their premiums.
Here's what you need to know:
— The deadline is Mar. 31 at midnight EDT for the states where the federal government is running the sign-up website; states running their own exchanges set their own deadlines.
— You can sign up online by going to HealthCare.gov or your state insurance exchange. If you don't know what your state marketplace is called, HealthCare.gov will direct you.
—You can call 1-800-318-2596 to sign up by phone or get help from an enrollment specialist.
—Check online for sign-up centers that may be open locally, offering in-person assistance.
—If you started an application by Monday but didn't finish, perhaps because of errors, missing information or website glitches, you can take advantage of a grace period. The government says it will accept paper applications until April 7 and take as much time as necessary to handle unfinished cases on HealthCare.gov.
—Be prepared for the possibility of long wait times.
NEW YORK (AP) — A man says his 86-year-old grandfather shot him in the head, killed his girlfriend and then took his own life out of frustration that the couple was living in a family home in New York City.
Michael Feliciano spoke to the Daily News from his hospital bed for a story published Sunday.
Police say Feliciano's grandfather, Heriberto Pagan, unleashed the gunfire on the couple and himself Friday.
The 47-year-old Feliciano and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Claritle Huerta, were living in a Staten Island home owned by Feliciano's ailing mother. Feliciano says his grandfather wanted them out because of Feliciano's past drug problems.
He says Huerta called him Friday to tell him his grandfather wanted to talk to him. He says he opened the door, "and that was it."
The couple's 4-month-old son was found unharmed inside the house.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis jury has awarded $1.14 million to a former employee of the Missouri Department of Public Safety who accused the department of age discrimination.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the St. Louis Circuit Court jury awarded $1.14 million Thursday to 61-year-old Timothy Barber, a senior agent in the department's Division of Alcohol & Tobacco Control. Barber worked for the department for nearly 30 years before he was let go in 2009.
Barber's lawyers asked the jury to award Barber three years' worth of lost compensation, minus what he gets in retirement money. Barber made about $56,000 a year. The jury awarded him $540,000 in actual damages and $600,000 in punitive damages.
A spokeswoman for the attorney general's office, which represented the state agency, declined comment.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are seeking to allow new charges on cellphones and wireless devices to help improve the state's 911 system.
Public safety officials say many counties cannot identify the location of someone who uses a cellphone to call 911.
Legislation advancing this year would establish a 3-percent charge on prepaid wireless devices. Proceeds would go for the poison control center and for counties to improve 911.
The proposals also would give counties a new 911 funding option by permitting a monthly fee on devices that can contact 911. The fee would be capped at $1.50 and require voter approval. Counties currently can assess a fee on landline phones or a sales tax. Counties would not be permitted to combine funding options.
