Obamacare presents enrollment challenge
October 18, 2013, 9:00 am by Lance Reaves
Although Obamacareís new online insurance markets launched more than two weeks ago, individuals are still having difficulty enrolling and business owners are still trying to determine how the healthcare plan could affect their operations moving forward.
Computer issues have prevented numerous uninsured individuals from enrolling in the healthcare plan at www.HealthCare.gov.
Although businesses cannot currently apply for coverage on the new online marketplace, those that have tried to get through to see what rates might be for their employees run into the same problem individuals face: they canít get through.
The law will begin delivering coverage through both private plans bought on the marketplaces and through Medicaid on Jan. 1.
