Since it launched in October, we have made dramatic improvements to HealthCare.gov, taking it from a system that didnt perform nearly as well as it should, to one that can help you learn about your new health insurance options, create an account, learn about financial help you may be able to receive, compare your options and select a plan. If youve tried HealthCare.gov and been unsatisfied with your experience, or if youve been wondering if youre eligible for a more affordable option under the health care law, here are some tips for you. Remember, you MUST enroll in a plan by December 23, and pay your premium, to get coverage on January 1, 2014.

Oh, and by the way, once your information is sent out the back end of our system to an insurance company it will likely be corrupted. So, you may or may not be covered. Have a nice day!
It’s not a marketplace, it’s a government program.
you must enroll....then what’s the penalty about????
Be fair, it says you MUST enroll to get coverage.
There is no capitalized May from the Federal Government,You MUST pay that penalty.
it says you MUST enroll,don’t want to,ain’t gonna.
Was able to enroll a 26 year old woman and her 8 year old daughter in about 15 minutes.. staying with BC/BS and going from a premium of 369 bucks a month to 92 bucks a month. Deductible is 500 instead of 5000..
Admittedly, they are low income but in today's economy so are lots of folks...
Did I miss it in the instructions?
You could have signed them up for Medicaid with no out of pocket costs except doctor office visits and prescription drug co-pays. Those are only $4.
They make to much to qualify for Medicaid but to little to pay $369/month...
Which is 138% of the official poverty level.... of course, it doesn’t cover every one so some people still remain uninsured.
Which is like $21500 a year. So $4500 a year for insurance and $5000/year deductible means almost half their income went to insurance costs so $98 a month with zero deductible looks pretty sweet to them..
