Some glitches seen in deadline week for 'Obamacare' sign-ups

New Yorkers who want health insurance from the

Our small but mighty team remains focused on facilitating the purchase and sale of health insurance plans that provide quality coverage through a transparent, simplified marketplace of qualified health plans.

Friday marks the end of the enrollment period for people seeking insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

That information was incorrect because every county in the nation now has at least one health insurer offering plans under the Affordable Care Act for next year, according to the AP report.

That may be too little time to persevere through the "we don't do that's" you likely might hear from phone calls you make to get help.

La Familia executive director Carla Lee says this is the third year the organization has offered the one-on-one assistance.

Gomez said the health center's certified application counselors experienced a surge in ACA traffic last week and she expects another one this week - the last opportunity to sign up for Obamacare. This year's open enrollment period was abbreviated by Congress and President Donald Trump to just 45 days from the four previous years' three-month period. Without these partners, we would not be almost as successful in letting people know there are affordable health plans available and there are enrollment assisters available to help navigate through the process.

Unfortunately, the same thing might be true in Tennessee where consumers looking for one-on-one help from the "local help" button on the websitemight get the names and numbers of brokers and helpers who then tell them they aren't signing up "subsidy" plans.

Morrissey denies defending Kevin Spacey
But you must forget the print media who are infatuated with their own reflection and do not want yours. I don't know about you but I've never been -in my youth I was never in situations like that.

That could slow the website, and lead to long hold times at the federal call center.

Enrollment fluctuates in the course of the year, but it's estimated that nine million to 10 million people now have coverage through the ACA's marketplaces.

In a twist, many people eligible for financial help may actually be able to pay lower premiums in 2018.

Although list price premiums for the most popular plans went up sharply, so did taxpayer-provided subsidies that limit how much individuals actually have to pay. Financial help is available, and we estimate that 85 percent of Nevadans who enroll in a plan through the exchange are eligible for financial assistance (subsidies) to help offset monthly premiums. It's unclear if the Trump administration will allow such extensions, or whether it will strictly enforce the deadline hour. That's why it's important for individuals and families to know they have alternative choices and should research their options before the December 15 deadline.

"We've been calling our patients just to remind them about the shorter enrollment period", she said.

In prior years, under the Obama administration, open enrollment lasted until January 31.
