A picture is worth 1000 words….
So the healthcare.gov website is down – and has been the last few days I checked. Hopefully it will be up and running smoothly very soon! The Presidents statement that the site will be fully operational for nearly everyone by the end of November is concerning, to put it mildly. This would only give us 15 days to complete January 1, 2014 enrollments; as all January 1 enrollments must be completed by December 15th, 2013. For many people who are losing their current plan January 1st, this is frightening!
For example, 28,000 Carolina Care Plan customers will lose their individual plans on January 1, 2014. Many of these residents have no option but to choose a guaranteed issue policy from the Federal Marketplace.
Let’s hope these issues get resolved soon!
