A new pop-up health insurance enrollment center near the South Carolina Aquarium was crowded during its first hour of business Monday morning — but not with residents eager to sign up for a policy under the Affordable Care Act.

The “Get Covered” Surge Center is at 360 Concord St. on Fountain Walk, next to the South Carolina Aquarium. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through Dec. 20.Walk-ins are welcome. Appointments can be scheduled by phone, 475-2859.

The small storefront, provided by the city of Charleston free of charge, was mainly full of volunteers and paid navigators. They were busy organizing pamphlets, answering cellphones, setting up a Christmas tree — all preparing for the rush of residents they hope will walk in over the next three weeks.
