A weeklong campaign to enroll thousands of community college students into health plans launched in Los Angeles on Monday to encourage young adults to sign up for Obamacare before March 31, or else face penalties under the federal law.

At least 50 percent of the 150,000 students who attend classes at the nine-campus Los Angeles Community College District are uninsured and would likely qualify for Medi-Cal or a lower tiered health plan, said Mike Eng, a member of the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees.
