The Wichita Falls Public Library will soon help residents sign up for coverage on the federal government's healthcare website.
Since October 1st, sign up for health insurance under the new Affordable Care Act has been available for residents.
As the government slowly fixes problems on the site so people can access it better, the Wichita Falls Public Library will make it possible for residents to sign up who do not have a computer.
On the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month the library is designating four of its computers for healthcare enrollment.
Usage will be on a first-come-first-served basis between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and a certified application counselor will be on-hand to assist.
And it all begins this Wednesday at 5 p.m. 
And if you have questions you need answers to about the sign up process and requirements of the health insurance mandate, the Texas Medical Association has on line help available at its site meandmydoctor.com.  
Topics include who must enroll, who is exempt, what happens if you aren't exempt and don't sign up and much more.
