Sign-ups for health plans on the ACA marketplace may lag this enrollment season, despite a strong start, which some experts attribute to cuts to advertising and outreach. Insurers and outreach groups are stepping in to help consumers. Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin said phones have been “ringing off the hook” and that the plan is assisting consumers and providing advice. UPMC Health Plan has also been working to combat confusion, upping communications efforts and encouraging people to reach out with questions.
