    Also missed one digit on my wife's SSN.  Online, I may be able to submit her card or a previous tax return to get that fixed...

    Identities of WA state navigators are better kept secrets than the identities of covert CIA agents...  The webpage will let you find and contact a navigator as long as you know their name.....

    Getting someone on the phone is virtually impossible, all my calls result in getting the "we can't handle the calls message".  They just gave the head honcho of this CF a 13% merit raise.  What were they thinking?

        I'm a contractor, my agency dropped all pretenses and only offers a couple of preventative care options. Apparently their "health insurance plans" didn't pass ACA muster. Unfortunately at our ages, my wife and I have ongoing health issues, so I have to have insurance.

        I picked out a plan, seems better on the Rx than the old one, but run$4-500 more per month than the old one.

        I'm making way too much for the subsidies right now.  but this gig ends in March, I'd be on Railroad unemployment which wouldn't even cover the insurance premium, let alone the mortgage or the utilities....  So I wan't to ask questions about coverage / premium support when (if?) that comes to pass.  No one to answer the phone...

    •  Gotta worry about a program that doesn't check (2+ / 0-)

      SSN's for correct no. of digits. The place to catch errors (speaking as a veteran programmer) is before they get very far into the process. Like immediately. Aren't they all 9 numeric digits? How hard could counting digits be?

      Walgreens and CVS pharmacies nationwide are helping people apply.  If you go into a navigator start over with a new account with a new email address.  

    •  Yeah... I tried the navigator search (1+ / 0-)

      If I knew the DOB and SSN of a navigator, I might be able to find one. I exaggerate, but it is extremely frustrating. You should be able to enter a zip code and get a result. I've been told at least 50 times by the nice robot lady to "call back later"...

      Understaffed, underfunded... We really need an informational campaign on the scale of the census to make this work.

      I try to be supportive out in the world, because I believe we have to make this work... or prove the rethugs right when they say government doesn't work... I think we have about a month to demonstrate the effectiveness of the program or we are kind of screwed.
