"I was able to complete my application on HealthCare.gov today to enter the health insurance marketplace. I have a few tips."
- "Use Internet Explorer (IE). I had trouble with Firefox.
- Write down your username and password. They require special characters and numbers and it will be easy to forget--that's what happened to me the first time. I never got an email to recover my username and had to create a new account with a different email address.
- And the usual, have your SSN and tax information handy so you don't have to stop and come back.
I'm self-employed and currently my mortgage and health insurance are running neck-and-neck, with the insurance gaining ground. I really need more affordable coverage."
