More than a million people are expected to be at the Vatican Sunday when Pope Francis elevates two predecessors, Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII, to sainthood.

The Obamacare sign-up deadline has passed…or has it? Contrary to popular belief, there are still plenty of options for consumers, according to Laura Adams, senior analyst at insuranceQuotes.com.  People can qualify for a special enrollment period if they have a qualifying life event (such as getting married or divorced, a change in family size, a change in income, relocating to a new area or losing existing health coverage).  These events entitle them to a special 60-day grace period to use the Obamacare exchanges. Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program never stop accepting enrollments.  If all else fails, consumers can sign up for a short-term health plan to bridge the gap until the next open enrollment in the Fall. However, these plans may not meet the Affordable Care Act’s requirements for minimum essential coverage and can deny coverage based upon pre-existing conditions.  Policyholders may still have to pay $95 or 1% of income for lacking compliant health insurance.  Tony talks with Laura about what you need to know.

Forget your keys?  How about the name of that person you just met?  Laugh it off say the experts.  New research shows that 20 minutes of laughter can incresase your short term memory and lower your stress level considerable.  What's the science behind this?  With Tony and Cindi this morning is Dr. Brendon Brock with the Carrick brain centers.
