Floridians who thought they missed this month's deadline to sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act still have time to sign up because of a Hurricane Irma extension.

The deadline to sign up under the special enrollment period for Floridians is Sunday.

Most states had a shortened enrollment period from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15, rather than until the end of January.

The Marketplace call center phone number is (800)318-2596 and lines are staffed 24 hours a day. For those using TTY services, the number is (855)889-4325.
