THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Snow and cold weather look like they are here to stay now in the North Country.
What is the main source of heat you use to heat your home in St. Lawrence County?
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
St. Lawrence County residents without health insurance have the opportunity to sign-up for a health care policy now. Open enrollment for 2018 health coverage began Nov. 1 through New York State’s health insurance marketplace, New York State of Health.
New Yorkers seeking coverage effective January 1, 2018 must enroll by Dec. 15, 2017. Open enrollment through the Marketplace ends on January 31, 2018.
This is later than the open enrollment period available through healthcare.gov for states that rely on the federal marketplace to enroll in coverage.
Enrollments or changes made between January 16 and January 31 take effect on March 1, 2018, the attorney general’s office said.
