    Obama offers fix for canceled health insurance plans

    President Barack Obama will lay out an administrative solution to address the problem of people getting cancellation notices from their health insurance providers due to the Affordable Care Act, a senior

    The fix puts the onus of the renewals on insurers. The administration is not requiring insurers or state insurance commissioners to extend the existing plans, but instead is allowing insurers to offer an additional year of coverage.

  President Obama announced today that quote- "We fumbled with the rollout of the Health Care Act."  The Federal web site to sign up for health care has been plagued with problems.

  But, there are other ways to sign up.  You don't even need to touch a computer.

  Since North Dakota doesn't have a state run, health care marketplace, call the Federal Marketplace at:  1-800-318-2596 to get a paper application.

  You'll hear a recorded menu and be asked to say "representative"…  to get one on one help. My call went right through.

Reporter: "Can you mail me a paper application and then walk me through the signup?"

Man: "Yes, sir."

  Minnesota has a state operated health care marketplace called www.MnSure.org. But again, you do not have to sign up online. One on one help is available. There are all kinds of community action agencies, and even local insurance agents, who can help you get signed up for the Affordable Health Care Act.

Denny DeMers, Tri Valley Opportunity Council: "You betcha. Just ask them and if they don't sell it themselves, they'll refer you to somebody who does."

  And if you already have insurance or if you're on Medicare or Medicaid, you do not need to do anything. It's estimated that only around 15-percent of Americans need to sign up, under the Affordable Health Care Act.

Reporter: "Overall, most Americans are already good to go and don't need to do anything?"

Denny DeMers: "Yes, that's true nationally and in our area the figures are even higher."

  Again, if you don't have insurance, one of the easiest ways to sign up, may be to simply call your local insurance agent.

  Experts say that low income families may find their policies will be very inexpensive and in some cases, even free.
