CHICAGO -- The Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace has planned a month of activities to call attention to the March 31 deadline for private insurance coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law.

Jennifer Koehler is executive director for the marketplace, also called Get Covered Illinois. She says it's critical to reach uninsured residents and make them aware of coverage opportunities.

The enrollment push has the theme "Road 2 Coverage" and will feature an RV touring the state, starting with an event Saturday at Juarez Community Academy in Chicago.

The RV is designed as a moving billboard for Get Covered Illinois, making stops in communities with high numbers of uninsured residents. During March, the RV will be in the Chicago area, Marion, East St. Louis, Rockford and several other cities.
