Enroll Alaska Temporarily Suspends Enrollments
ANCHORAGE, AK- October 15, 2013- Enroll Alaska has decided to temporarily suspend enrolling individuals in the Federally Facilitated Marketplace until the glitches with the system and errors with the subsidy calculator are corrected. “We feel it is important to make sure that Alaskans are receiving the highest benefit they are entitled to and with the current glitches, this is not happening,” said Chief Operating Officer, Tyann Boling. “Our agents will continue to speak with individuals and families to help them understand their health insurance options and we will enroll individuals as soon as the problems with the website are fixed.”
The Obama Administration announced last week that the Federally Facilitated Marketplace would be fixed by November 30th, Enroll Alaska is hopeful that they will be able to enroll individuals before that date. “As soon as we are confident in the performance of the Federally Facilitated Marketplace (healthcare.gov) we will start enrolling individuals and deploy our agents across the state” said Boling.
Individuals who enroll for health insurance by December 15, 2013 will be covered by their new plan starting on January 1, 2014. Open enrollment ends on March 31, 2014. Enroll Alaska has multiple locations throughout the state and specific information on the locations can be found at www.enrollingalaska.com.
