Where to go for help enrolling in Obamacare


Granted, the federally-run online healthcare marketplace isn't functional right now, but Miami-Dade and Broward Counties have lots of people able to help, in your choice of English, Spanish or Creole.
Here's a short list of places you can visit or cal. Expect the list to grow rapidly as more organizations join the Obmanacare enrollment ranks.

More good news: You can find many of these same resources on healthcare.gov when you scroll down this page and enter your zip code -- with caveats. For example, when we entered a Broward zip code, the system returned a list of contacts in Lincoln, Nebraska.
