DENVER (AP) — Colorado residents who do not have health care insurance have two weeks to get coverage or pay a fine.

A campaign to round up more young participants kicks off Thursday when models in downtown Denver sit at a pretend outdoor bar on a downtown pedestrian corridor. They are sending a message that time is running out for getting insurance.

More than 250,000 people have gotten coverage through the state-run insurance exchange, but too many of those signing up are elderly. So far, about 24 percent of people signing up in Colorado are ages 18 to 34.
