The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced Monday that heavy maintenance to the Social Security Administration's website (SS) will result in the inability of HealthCare.gov to verify Social Security numbers and other personal details required for coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
The maintenance is expected to begin Saturday, February 15 at 3p.m. and end Tuesday, February 18 at 5a.m. Those consumers that are affected by the website maintenance should phone the federal call center on Tuesday to arrange for coverage March 1. The number to the federal call center is 1-800-318-2596.
