There are several ways of how to apply for Obamacare: online, in person, by phone, or by sending paper application. The most convenient way is naturally using the website: www.healthcare.gov for the Federally Facilitated Marketplace. Unfortunately multiple crashes and long delays made the website practically unusable. The problems probably will be fixed in the next couple months, but it may be a small consolation for people who have been notified that their existing plans are going away. For them the immediate action is needed, and here we’ll suggest a workaround for how to apply for Obamacare in Federal Marketplace until the Federally Facilitated Marketplace website will be fully functional.
How to Apply for Obamacare / Sending Paper Applications
We do not recommend sending a paper application for processing because delays in processing may exclude you from 01/10/2014 effective date.
How to Apply for Obamacare / Over-the-Phone Application
This seems to be the only acceptable solution today. The phone application is accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by the Government Help Center. The phone interview lasts from 40 min to 1 hour. In 1-2 weeks you’ll get a response telling you whether you are eligible to participate in the Federal Marketplace and what kind of subsidies you are entitled to. Only after that you’ll be able to review the available in your area Obamacare plans and enroll in one of them.
