There is always a last-minute rush. Since enrollment has been surging already this year, Friday could be swamped. But agents and navigators say they and the sign-up website have been preparing.
People who want to can sign up on their own. They can go to the healthcare.gov website or call the sign-up office at 1-800-318-2596. (For TTY it’s 1-855-889-4325)
People who want guidance can call a navigator — a nonprofit guide who helps people enroll. There are a handful of navigator organizations in Georgia. The biggest is Insure Georgia, at InsureGA.org or 1-866-988-8246. Some insurance agents also do sign-ups.
Under some extreme circumstances, people can get a sign-up extension, but by then the local navigator help will be gone.
