Thursday, April 30th, is the last day to sign up for it under the special tax-filing enrollment extension. Individuals who do not have health insurance by the end of the day will have to pay roughly $325 or 2 percent of their income, whichever is higher.

After Thursday, consumers will have to wait until the fall to buy insurance unless they have a life-changing event like getting married, moving or giving birth.

Florida led the way with enrollment under the Affordable Care Act with nearly 1.6 million signing up, including first time-enrollees and renewals from last year.
