Where can I go to get help applying for Obamacare?
Need help applying for Obamacare? You don’t have to do it alone. There are lots of resources available to help you understand your coverage options.

The HealthSherpa Consumer Advocate Team
The HealthSherpa Consumer Advocate Team is filled with highly-trained Obamacare and Medicaid experts who are on-hand year-round. And they’re also here just to provide help applying for Obamacare. By working one-on-one with you, they can help you find and enroll in the best Marketplace health insurance plan for you. You can chat with the team online through the HealthSherpa website, or speak on the phone at (872) 228-2549.
Our Consumer Advocates aren’t salespeople, but individuals with non-profit and social work backgrounds who have vast amounts of Obamacare knowledge and experience helping consumers find the right ACA health plan. They can help you figure out what subsidies and tax credits you’re eligible for, or if you qualify for low- or no-cost coverage through Medicaid. Once you begin working with a given Consumer Advocate, you can continue working with just that team member to make sure that your advocate is already up-to-speed on your and your family’s needs.
The HealthSherpa blog also has a lot of information about the ins and outs of Obamacare, from understanding Open Enrollment Period and Special Enrollment Periods (where you need a qualifying life event to enroll), instructions on how to apply for Marketplace insurance, to deciphering the lingo you’ll come across in enrolling in a Marketplace plan and more.
