When it comes to health insurance questions, ask away.

The deadline to get insurance through the federal exchange and avoid penalty is Friday.

"Insurance can be complicated," Wanda Palmer, a health care navigator for Workforce Connections in La Crosse, said. "No dumb questions. A lot of people, they think, 'I should understand that but I don't.'

"I try to give expamples and explain and educate in that way."

When it comes to options, Palmer said there are plenty in the area - sort of.

"In La Crosse County for example, there's two insurance providers but each of those could have a variety of plans," Palmer said.

Workforce Connections will assist anyone in the area with health insurance questions.
