    The letter came from Covered California.

    •  Chat Box and Helpline (0+ / 0-)

      Through the CoveredCA website, you can find a toll-free number to call for assistance as well as a chat feature to do so via the internet.  Both warned about a 20-minute wait due to high volume, but the toll free person came up much quicker than that.  She was able to answer my questions about the handoff from the ACA-sponsored website to the private insurance company we selected.

      The ACA does not cover people who are not documented citizens, a huge flaw in my opinion but unavoidable in passing the law politically.  Millions will remain unprotected because of this loophole.  My niece is also an immigrant, so I hope that doesn't become an obstacle.  We should know in about two weeks.

      Does anybody know about the incarceration issue?  That wasn't part of anything I saw on the California or federal ACA websites.  If I had more time, I would call the 800 number for clarification on this policy.
