For the past three years, the GOP conservatives have been best known for their destructive tactics in their efforts to sabotage the Affordable Care Act. Whether by attempting to kill it in a legislative approach, or damaging its reputation and public image among many Americans who are not well familiar with its anticipated consequences. The law that was passed in 2010 with no single Republican vote, aims to provide 30 million uninsured Americans an access to affordable, quality healthcare, and eventually help the skyrocketing medical costs to cool-off and stabilize.

The help desk at healthcare. gov told me to call Anthem at 855 720-3502. When I called there they told me to call 855 748 1804. When I called there they told me to call 888 266 3016.

    11/12 the live chat at healthcare.gov could not help me at all. They supposedly filed a report, as follows:

    The Advanced Resolution Center has received your issue and is currently processing it. You will receive a response within 2 – 5 business days from the date of your initial request. Please call back after this time if you have not received a response. Marketplace call center at 1-800-316-2596.

    11/22 I called 1-800-316-2596. I got this recorded message: The number you have called cannot be reached from your location.

      William, I would set up a totally NEW account on http://www.healthcare.gov, and give it another go. Don’t waste your time in the bureaucracy. Just start fresh.
