Affordable Care Act: Insurance signup deadline at midnight, open account and get extra 2 weeks

Time is running out to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

The deadline is midnight tonight, but if you begin the process at healthcare.gov before the deadline you will have two extra weeks to complete the signup.

Those who don't sign up for health insurance will face a penalty of $95 or 1 percent of their income at tax time next year.

The website crashed early Monday but has since been fixed.

About a million people visited healthcare.gov each day last week.

So far, more than 6.5 million people have enrolled in health insurance.
