"When are the deadlines? What are the fines? What are the plans?"

All questions Bama Covered hopes to answer.

It's a movement of more than 600 college students hoping to help the community understand and apply for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

"I signed up a woman for blue cross blue shield for $10 yesterday, how do I get that? And the answers are it depends on your income, it depends on your family size and we can help you walk thru that, " says Daniel Liss, Co-founder of Bama Covered.

Help that mother of one Keaire Reese, can appreciate.

"My initial questions was how affordable was it going to be for us single parents because me being a single mom i understand how important it is to have healthcare, " Reese.

"Just the cost and how it's going to affect me and my future, " said another attendee, Christopher Windon.

"we're not here just to push people to enroll, we're here to walk you thru everything on the table and to help in any way we can"

Giving the community a sense of direction.

"I'm going to go home and discuss it with my wife and we're going to get online and fill out some forms and look it over and possibly take a good action to it, " says Windon.

"It is very important because you never know what may happen to you and want to make sure at all times you have health insurance so that you can be able to go to the doctor and get your check ups because you want to make sure that you are around for your kids, " says Reese.

"For everyone that may not be enrolling, even if you choose not to do so, everyone's got questions and we've got answers so we can definitely help, " says Liss.

The deadline to sign up for healthcare is March 31st.
