A big teal bus rolled through San Diego Friday to share an important message about health insurance open enrollment.
The bus is on a 38-stop tour of California to raise awareness and get residents without health insurance to sign up.
At Borrego Health Center in El Cajon, staff members were preparing to help people enroll in a health insurance plan starting next week.
Open enrollment for California Covered starts Sunday, November 1.
Californians have until January 31, 2016 to enroll in affordable health insurance. If they miss the deadline, they may face penalties.
The Affordable Care Act, known by many as Obama Care, kicked in two years ago but there are still millions of California residents eligible for Medi-Cal or financial help but not registered.
