DAVIE, Fla. -

Two weeks remain for Floridians to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The deadline to enroll is March 31.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is hosting an enrollment event at the Institute of Public Safety at Broward College on Sunday.  The event begins at 9 a.m. and those interested are asked to bring social security numbers or document numbers for immigrants.  People also need employer and income information for every family member that needs insurance. Those enrolling should also bring any current health insurance policy numbers.

More than 4 million Americans have enrolled in health care plans, including more than 442,000 in Florida, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.  Metter is about 60 miles northwest of Savannah.
