Healthcare Enrollment May Be Stifled By Federal Website Maintenance

Consumers attempting to complete health insurance applications through online healthcare exchanges before the February 15th deadline may be frustrated this weekend. February 15 is the deadline to apply for coverage that will begin on March 1. 

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 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.
