I didn't think there were any offices that you could actually go to. I think you can only call the contact number on their website.

Go to healthcare.gov and click on find local help and insert your zip code. This will put you in touch with the nearest office.

You can go and talk to one of the brokers at the BCBS office on CR101
From my experience, BCBS is the only game in town if you'll be using the healtchare marketplace. If you are eligible for Medicare, then the story is different, but I still suggest talking to the professionals at the local insurance office

That BCBS office is top notch and a one stop shop for your healthcare insurance needs.

That's great. Last year when I was looking into it, I was told by them on the telephone that there were no offices to go to.

I can help. You can keep your health insurance plan if you want to. You can keep your doctors if you want to, cost for the purchase of insurance will continue downward as will co pays and deductibles and your benefits will only increase each year. and Oh doctors love the plan

Let's try this. This is for when my husband is 62 and I will be 60. My husband will be employed until then and will get his healthcare through his employer as he always as. What happens after he retires? He will not have health insurance and I will not either. To cobra it would be way too expensive.

I went to the BCBS office on CR 101. They told me until I was a permanent resident of Florida, they really couldn't help me. If you are a resident, they are the people that can help, and they are very personable and professional.

I used the government website to get my health insurance in Virginia. It was very easy and the payment is reasonable for the insurance I chose. That was just MY personal experience.

COBRA is what the insurance actually costs.

Why should the taxpayer now "subsidize" what the employee is no longer earning, and the employer had been "subsidizing" for decades?

Hi tedquick: I have been busy assisting the moderators with the political forum. It appears there are a couple of the TOPIX recalcitrants interfering with the forum. Its like the scorpion story, they will sting irrespective of the consequences. This in itself is a problem can you imagine trying to have a point counterpoint conversation with these guys.....I believe Obama is wrong......your a racist Huh?

My favorite shows are back on and that helps me calm me down Vikings, The Americans, Justify, Walking Dead

Personal Best Regards:
