We are less than two weeks away from the deadline for enrolling in the Health Insurance Marketplace under the Affordable Care Act. Enrolling has gotten much easier, and yet we know there are still many people who have not enrolled and are at risk of a possible tax penalty. The biggest issue continues to be simply a lack of knowledge and confusion over where to get answers. We want to help.

Tuesday, WISC-TV is partnering with Covering Kids and Families Wisconsin, the UW Extension, DeanCare HMO, Group Health Cooperative, the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families and others in offering a phone bank, open from 3-7 p.m.

Experts will be on hand to answer your questions on how to enroll, requirements for enrolling, changes to BadgerCare and a host of other issues you may have concerns about. There will be an online chat from 5-7 p.m. You can submit question now if you’d like by visiting www.channel3000.com/aca.

Get the information you need to get the health care that’s best for you. Thanks to our partners this coming Tuesday, it may be easier than you think.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
