There are countless questions about the roll-out of ObamaCare. As more information becomes available, I’ll be sure to post it. In the meantime, here’s some information you may find helpful!
The Marketplace will be available on HealthCare.gov and CuidadoDeSalud.gov starting on October 1st. Right now, families and small business owners can visit these websites to start getting ready for open enrollment. A toll-free call center is also available to help answer questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A telephone helpline is also available, 24-hours, every day - 1-800-318-2596.
These are also some Maine-specific resources:
