Local healthcare navigators stay up late to get people signed up


Local healthcare navigators stayed up late Monday to help people enroll before the Obamacare deadline.  They planned to be on hand until midnight at Aspen Health Care Services in Elkhart. 

We spoke with Navigator Zanzer Anderson.  The interview gave her a second to just catch her breath because she's been so busy.  "At one point in time I was enrolling a guy, trying to get him enrolled, and I was carrying on four conversations, texting and on Facebook with some people just helping them," she says.  "It's been a little crazy."

Anderson says they did run into some delays Monday because so many people were trying to access the system at once.  She says some people claimed their place in the virtual line, ran errands and then came back to finish the process
