Saturday is the deadline for coverage to start on April 1.

Open enrollment for 2014 ends March 31. Those not enrolled by that date face penalties of $95 or one percent of adjusted gross income, whichever is higher. Penalties increase in successive years.

Those enrolled by March 31 should be covered by the end of April.
