Get Ready to Enroll. http://ripr.org/post/no-health-insurance-get-ready-enroll <p><strong>UPDATE</strong>: HHS unveiled a newly redesigned healthcare.gov today, which lets users learn more about enrolling in health insurance plans through online insurance marketplaces beginning October 1st.

It also creates a customized "checklist" to help you prepare for enrollment, which includes a list of documents you'll need to gather.</p> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 16:20:40 +0000 Kristin Gourlay 17290 at http://ripr.org
