WILKES-BARRE -- If you're without health insurance, it's not too late to sign up.

Even though President Trump has promised to gut the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, people are still within the deadline to sign up for 2017 healthcare coverage.

Students from the Wilkes University School of Pharmacy held a signup fair along South Street in Wilkes Barre on Saturday to help members of the community sign up.

It was estimated nearly three dozen enrolled during the event.

You have until the end of the month to enroll for healthcare coverage, or you'll be hit with a penalty.

    There’s nothing wrong with signing people up for insurance as a safeguard. And there’s nothing dishonest about this article. It clearly states what occurred. I just don’t see why we need comments about slanted media. It’s an event that happened in our local community. It’s “local news.”

      And people here have no idea why their kids get educated and leave this area…the elderly and the poor aren’t going to float the local governments forever.
