PEORIA, Ill. -- With less than four weeks to enroll for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, the state of Illinois is making a big push to get people signed up.

GCI, Get Covered Illinois, is going all out to make residents aware that the clock is ticking to the March 31 deadline.

The Road to Coverage will tour the state by RV. Certified navigators will be on hand to answer questions and schedule enrollment appointments. 

No word on when the tour will roll through central Illinois.

The state is also airing two public service announcements, one featuring Pete Wentz of the group Fall Out Boy.

Get Covered is also joining with social media site "Buzz Feed" to reach young residents who need to sign up.

And some landmark buildings around the state will be lighted in GCI’s logo color of orange as reminder to enroll.

More than 270,000 Illinoians have signed up for insurance, either through the private marketplace or, like most who have enrolled, expanded Medicaid.

And remember, if you don't sign up enroll by March 31, you may be subject to a penalty.
