I found a local agent that had a sign out front touting ACA. Initial meeting I had a bunch of question (thanks to the folks on this board). She answered 90% (got the other answers) gave us info sheets to fill out with a bunch of questions. She specifically explained we needed to be able to report everything broken down monthly not annually.....
I sat down with her on 12/22, she called BCBS with questions twice. Was there 1.5 hours she entered all the data, we paid the first premium ($48.00 )and set up monthly auto pay. Was enrolled then and there and received our cards yesterday.
Smooth as silk. You still have time. I'd seek the help of an Agent.
We are in SC so no state market place.
Yes, I've found an agent to be very valuable. I signed up with his help in mid-November. When I checked Healthcare.gov in early December, though, I noticed that my application was in "submitted" status instead of "completed." I called the agent back and he resubmitted my application, which then came up as "completed."
Obviously I did my own due diligence, but having an agent in my corner who works on ACA applications all day long helped smooth out the bump in the road. AND .... no more waiting on hold for an hour! Hooray!
