Avoiding Affordable Care Act problems
Here’s what government agencies and consumer groups advise:
*Don’t use a search engine to find the online government marketplace. Go to healthcare.gov and choose the links for Florida or other states (assuming technical problems ease and more people can get in).
*Don’t give your Social Security number or credit card or banking information to companies you didn’t contact or in response to unsolicited advertisements.
*To report suspected fraud, call the Health Insurance Marketplace call center at 1-800-318-2596 or contact the Federal Trade Commission. State agencies also can handle and pass along complaints.
