Deadline approaches for health care coverage

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa residents seeking health care coverage on the federal exchange have until Sunday to sign up.
  
This is the second open enrollment period under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, known as the Affordable Care Act. For the most part, enrollment has gone more smoothly this time, with fewer complaints about technical glitches.
  
Federal authorities say nearly 40,000 people in Iowa had signed up or had been re-enrolled in a plan as of last week.
  
In Iowa, some consumers have been scrambling to find new coverage since the state took over a cooperative that was selling insurance to residents in Iowa and Nebraska.
