Kim Gillan is the Region 8 director for the federal Department of Health and Human Services office in Denver.

She says people perhaps may be confused about the multiple sign-up deadlines, “But January 31st is the drop dead date for Open Enrollment 3.”

Gillan says if people miss this deadline they likely won’t be able to get insurance for 2016 and are subject to the federal penalties for failing to have health insurance.
