CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Monday s the deadline to sign up for Affordable Health Care.

Counselors in Charlotte say they're getting a lot of calls, but not seeing a big push to get on board.

The president has pulled out all the stops.

A few weeks ago he got a lot of press for a comedy routine with Zach Galifianakis.

Then there was an ad with Lebron James -- all trying to get people to sign up for Obamacare in time for the deadline.

But an estimated 100,000 people in Mecklenburg County alone are expected to miss that deadline.

Don Jonas runs the Care Ring community clinic for low income people in the Charlotte area and says he s very concerned about the number of people who still don t have insurance.

Long term in our country, we ve got to figure out a way to provide care. This is one way to do it. It s extraordinarily complicated. It s had its ups and downs, broken websites, challenges in communicating with the public. There s going to be an awful lot of people that, April 1, are still not going to have insurance.

Their next chance is later this fall, when round two of signups begin in November.
