MORTON, Ill -- The high price of gas isn't stopping Get Covered Illinois on the "Road 2 Coverage."

The statewide bus tour made a stop in Morton Monday. It's designed to boost enrollment in the Affordable Care Act before the March 31st deadline.

While the bus will be rolling along to its next stop, organizers say there is always help available in Central Illinois.

"We have counselors available every day to see people," said Sara Sparkman with the Tazewell County Health Department. "At the health department we have an in-person counselor. And then we have locations throughout the county; North Pekin, Hopedale, Morton, East Peoria. Just about everywhere in the county we've tried to find a place to let us meet with clients and help them through the process."
