Affordable Care Act deadline is Friday

Ex-CMS staffer buoys ObamaCare

In spite of all of Trump's sabotage efforts, Obamacare is working.

She says having insurance was very important to her because, "I never had none". Their opportunity to enroll in a marketplace health plan is extended to December 31, but they have to speak with a healthcare.gov representative in order to complete their enrollment process.

The enrollment period was cut from 90 days to 45 days.

Since President Donald Trump took office, he has tried to repeal and replace the ACA, which was one of his campaign promises. That promise will be tested in this week's crush.

Navigators are available to help consumers pick the right plan. It also surfaced in other states besides IL, she said.

"There are so many unknowns still", said Jenkins. But she attributed that activity to consumers needing more help with enrollment due to all the conflicting information they'd heard. Thursday and Friday are expected to be the heaviest days. Expect one hell of a call wait time. Here in Florida, more than 800,000 have signed up for coverage.

LSU expects O-line coach Jeff Grimes to leave for BYU
Grimes is from Garland, Texas, and was a four-year letterwinner at UTEP as an offensive tackle. Grimes, 49, is in his fourth season as the Tigers' offensive line coach.

As you mentioned, Florida is a state that did not expand Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Care Act.

Nationwide, nearly 4.7 million people have signed up for a plan this year, which is 17 percent more than the same time last year.

Baumgarten spoke with Health News Florida about how the Affordable Care Act has shaped Florida's health care market-even as the state chose not to expand Medicaid eligibility.

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.

Many people will also find Bronze plans to be much cheaper and in some cases free because their subsidy may be large enough to cover the entire premium. It's unlikely MS will match last year's totals in which more than 88,000 people signed up, because open enrollment ends after six weeks instead of 90 days. That means consumers on the East Coast will have until 3 a.m. on Saturday morning to enroll.

Israeli Air force strikes Gaza following alleged attack on Israel
Wednesday was the sixth day in a row in which rocket attacks were fired by Gaza terrorists at southern Israel. "The military facilities were used as training and weapons storage compounds", the statement said.

And the report's findings, which parallel a growing body of research into the law's effect, undercut arguments by the Trump administration and congressional Republicans who have tried to discredit and roll back the law.

"Consumers should print or save a screen shot as evidence they were unable to complete an application, should this happen".

Although the administration has not indicated how it would deal with consumers who get caught up in potential glitches on Healthcare.gov, advocates suggest taking no chances.

Still, he said, "given the unstable nature of the current individual market, we would not be surprised if our numbers are slightly less than previous year".

While Dec. 15 is the deadline for states served by HealthCare.gov, that's not the case everywhere.
