BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina still planned late Tuesday morning for its mobile unit to be in Myrtle Beach Wednesday and Thursday so people can speak to company representatives about health care options.

Company spokesman Adam Myrick said that the weather forecast for the Grand Strand was that the current winter storm is expected to be limited to rain along the coast, therefore the mobile unit will be in the Doctors Care parking lot at 1220 21st Ave. N. from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday.

The company’s representatives on the mobile unit will be able to answer questions and help people purchase insurance from BlueCross and BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina.

Open enrollment for healthcare insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act ends March 31. People who are still uninsured at that time face having to pay a fine of 1 percent of their 2014 household income with a minimum of $95.
