FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Big changes could be coming to your health care coverage. 

If you are from the Vehicle City there are some very important things you need to know. 

With an important deadline approaching, community leaders are urging the remaining uninsured and those wishing to re-enroll to take action before the December 15th deadline in order to get ACA Marketplace health care coverage that starts January 1st. 

Dr. Nicole Lurie from the Federal Department of Health and Human Services said this is the time for people to sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

Residents may also be eligible for coverage in Healthy Michigan or the Flint Health Care Waiver.

If residents are interested in learning more about their options, Hamilton Community Health Network will host a "Get it. Keep it. Use it." enrollment event on December 6 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
