Joshua Peck of the nonprofit Get America Covered which supports people enrolling in plans on the ACA marketplace says some of the alternative plans offered by private insurers don't have to cover pre-existing conditions.
"We have in-person assistance in about half the counties but we're providing enrollment assistance in all 67 counties by phone", said Ray. "When first learning about their coverage options, young people need all the information they can get, and both in-person outreach and advertising make a difference in getting them covered".

Health care experts said there are more short-term plans available but warn about serious drawbacks.
But some analysts say that premiums are flat or dropping next year because insurers overpriced their plans in 2018 because of uncertainty over the future of ACA.
An analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that the 2019 premiums for ACA silver plans are 16 percent higher than they would have been if the individual mandate wasn't repealed, short-term plans weren't expanded and the cost-sharing payments weren't nixed. The Trump administration has slashed funding by 80 percent since 2016 for health care Navigators who help our neighbors find the best policy in the HealthCare.gov Marketplace.
