An Enroll Alaska agent will be at Bartlett Regional Hospital today from 1 to 5. Anybody interested in getting help signing up for healthcare can either call Enroll Alaska to make an appointment or simply stop by the office, which is located off the hospital lobby.
According to Enroll Alaska’s Chief Operating Officer Tyann Boling, a second Juneau agent will be located at Walmart, hopefully, within the next two weeks.
“Next week is the week that the website is supposed to be functioning better and we are going to be making a trip to Juneau and getting one of our other agents up and on board and then he will be working at the Walmart,” she says.
Boling says the healthcare.gov website is still experiencing problems making it difficult to sign people up for health insurance. Juneau’s agent started last week and Boling says he hasn’t completed an enrollment yet.
