(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Today is the final day to sign up for MNsure.

If you've paid a premium with MNsure, you'll be covered.

If you've been approved for medical assistance or Minnesota Care through MNsure, you're covered.

You're also covered even if you haven't gotten your insurance card, but did pay.

Brokers say things are running a lot smoother now with the website.

MNsure suggests avoiding peak hours from 3p.m. to 6p.m. Also make sure you have all your information ready.

"Just picking out a plan is easy I can help people with that all day long. It's actually putting the correct numbers from their taxes to find out what they should receive in subsidies through the state," said Bill Nystrom, an insurance broker.

If you sign up Tuesday, you have until Jan.10 to pay. If you miss the enrollment deadline, you have until March 31 to avoid a penalty.
