The first phase of the ACA went into effect back on October 1st.
Officials say more than 4.8 million Texans do not have health insurance.
The Rio Grande Valley is one of the areas most in need.
Action 4 News teamed up with Doctors Hospital at Renaissance to answer your questions.
We held a special phone bank from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19tth.
The goal was to help Valley residents better understand how the Affordable Care Act works.From Twitter:
If you do not have health insurance, there are four ways to apply for Affordable Care Act insurance:
• Apply online. Visit HealthCare.gov to get started.
• Apply by phone. Call 1-800-318-2596 (note the phone letters: 800-F**-CKYO) to apply for a health insurance plan and enroll over the phone. (TTY: 1-855-889-4325)
• Apply in person. Visit a trained counselor in your community to get information and apply in person. Find help in your area at LocalHelp.HealthCare.gov.
• Apply by mail. Complete a paper application and mail it in. You can download the paper application form and instructions from HealthCare.gov.
The station even did a similar phone back back in November 2013, the video is below.
Why is a mainstream media news outlet, which we are told are supposed to be "unbiased" watchdogs acting as a bullhorn for propagnada about the federal government's failed health care scheme?
Never mind the unscrupulous behavior of the former director of Texas health care "navigators" that was caught on film, as well as instances of encouraging fraud.
That's what a lot of respondents on Action 4's Facebook page are asking?
Can you say "Government Run Media?"
