   The deadline to sign up for insurance in states like Missouri and Illinois, where the federal government running the healthcare exchange, is 11:59 p.m. Monday.  And as the number of people rushing to the Healthcare.gov website accelerates, federal officials are warning that they could again face long wait times on the site.  
   The site is reportedly working well now after its disastrous start last October.  Today the problem is expected to be the sheer volume of users.  
   Those without insurance can be fined either one-percent of their income or $95, whichever is greater, when they file 2014 federal taxes.  Some local residents tell Fox 2 News that the fine isn't enough to persuade them to sign up.
   To sign up before the deadline, visit HealthCare.gov or you can call 1-800-318-2596 to sign up by phone.
   Federal officials have said the deadline will be pushed back for anyone who is still working on an application at midnight.

Monday is the deadline to sign up for private health insurance in the new online markets created by President Barack Obama's health care law. So far, about 4 out of every 5 people enrolling have qualified for tax credits to reduce the cost of their premiums.

Here's what you need to know:

— The deadline is Mar. 31 at midnight EDT for the states where the federal government is running the sign-up website; states running their own exchanges set their own deadlines.

— You can sign up online by going to HealthCare.gov or your state insurance exchange. If you don't know what your state marketplace is called, HealthCare.gov will direct you.

—You can call 1-800-318-2596 to sign up by phone or get help from an enrollment specialist.

—Check online for sign-up centers that may be open locally, offering in-person assistance.

—If you started an application by Monday but didn't finish, perhaps because of errors, missing information or website glitches, you can take advantage of a grace period. The government says it will accept paper applications until April 7 and take as much time as necessary to handle unfinished cases on HealthCare.gov.

—Be prepared for the possibility of long wait times.

NEW YORK (AP) — A man says his 86-year-old grandfather shot him in the head, killed his girlfriend and then took his own life out of frustration that the couple was living in a family home in New York City.

Michael Feliciano spoke to the Daily News from his hospital bed for a story published Sunday.

Police say Feliciano's grandfather, Heriberto Pagan, unleashed the gunfire on the couple and himself Friday.

The 47-year-old Feliciano and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Claritle Huerta, were living in a Staten Island home owned by Feliciano's ailing mother. Feliciano says his grandfather wanted them out because of Feliciano's past drug problems.

He says Huerta called him Friday to tell him his grandfather wanted to talk to him. He says he opened the door, "and that was it."

The couple's 4-month-old son was found unharmed inside the house.
