Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

          I am needing any URL or internet address which gives a step by step outline for applying for Obamacare.  This information is needed for someone who works full time, but does not have health insurance because the employing company does not offer it.  The link which I believe is the right one is https://www.healthcare.gov/   

          Any help given in response to this question will be deeply appreciated because this person does need some sort of health coverage.  

          Thank you

          George

It actually depends on which state they are in.  Many states are running their own web sites for Obamacare / the Affordable Care Act.  California's is Covered California https://www.coveredca.com/

Hello Everyone,

           The state is Tennessee.  Also, I just found out my friend does not have internet access at home.  Can she possibly apply over the phone?  If so, could a link be given on how to do that as well?

             Thank you

You messed up my Edit, Mr. B. Get back over to the Coding TA's where you belong .   ; p

From the abc15.com link, above:

... However, users can get around the technical issues by filling out a seven page paper application. Downloaded the paper application at www.healthcare.gov.

Filling out the online application can be tedious. Users should expect to spend about 45 minutes of entering data, answering various prompts to verify your identity and finally selection a healthcare option.  While the Affordable Car Act defines only four categories of plans, there are about 80 options to pick from. But, if you logout to do some research, good luck logging back in.  That's one of the technical glitches that the government is hoping to fix ...

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             Thanks so much for the resourceful links and the toll free 1-800 number given.  After thoroughly going over everything, I am confident I have everything needed to get my friend started when she comes down on December 15th.  It is nice having the additional links within the link of http://www.healthcare.gov/ and the toll free number of 1-800-318-2596 to use as references if we get stuck on any part of the application.  

              Thanks once again for your help and have a nice upcoming Thanksgiving holiday : - )
