Today is the first day of a six-month period, when the nearly 200,000 Montanans who don't currently have health insurance, can enroll in one of several insurance options offered under the Affordable Care Act.
    Last night, we told you the details of how to enroll. In this feature interview, Lindeen talks with News Director Sally Mauk about the overall impact of Obamacare on Montana.
    Even though people can start signing up today, Lindeen advises them to take their time.
