β€œTo meet the personal needs of individuals, we are offering a variety of ways to receive assistance: walk-in education and enrollment sessions, personalized one-on-one meetings with trained counselors, as well as assistance by phone," he added.

Reynal said people can complete paper applications to get an idea if they qualify for Marketplace plans. She said until the Marketplace is fully functional online, people will not be able to officially choose an insurance plan, but the paper application will give them an idea of their cost and coverage.
