Many people have been throwing problems with HealthCare.gov, so I wanted to remind everyone that they're are several other methods for although for health insurance through the exchanges, including calling 800-318-2596 or finding a local certified healthcare navigator.
Please don't let the problems with HealthCare.gov stop you from getting health insurance through the exchanges for reasonable prices.
My wife's aunt can get a bronze plan for FREE or a silver plan for less than a dollar a day with the credits. She's currently uninsured and doesn't qualify for Medicare for about nine more months. She doesn't qualify for Medicaid and even if our asshole governor had approved the Medicaid expansion, her income would still be too high for Medicaid.
Even those without preexisting conditions should sign up because if you don't sign up by March 31, 2014, you'll have to wait until 2015 to get coverage. Maybe you'll be lucky and stay healthy, maybe you'll lost everything. I know far too many people who lost their homes because they couldn't afford or chose not to purchase health insurance.
