It's day 11 of the Health Insurance Marketplace (HealthCare.gov) with 171 days left to enroll and I still haven't been able to even initiate the apply-for-coverage process. I've tried at different times of the morning, afternoon, evening and even late night, without success. I feel like a hacker. A bad hacker. I wasn't even able to create a Marketplace Account (establishing my username and password) until late last night. I was so encouraged! I woke up early today expecting to zip through the process like a hot knife through butter. I input my new username and password but the website responded "The information you entered isn't valid." Isn't valid? I tried again and again and again but the website was relentless. ". . . isn't valid." ". . . isn't valid." ". . .isn't valid." In other words, it doesn't even recognize my new account that it had confirmed the night before. Aaaarrrggghhh!!!
Oh well. 171 days left to enroll. Hope springs eternal.
