It said that it would have its navigator phone number 1-888-230-7772 staffed in English and Spanish by Thursday. It plans to have two websites as well, where information will be available at https://healthcarega.org and https://obamacareparalatinos.org. The federal enrollment center also takes calls at 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325) And last years navigator, Insure Georgia, is trying to make a go of it, with its staffers registering as insurance agents and planning to continue to guide shoppers. It is still at insurega.org and 1-866-988-8246. Prices for the health plans this year are expected to be mostly on par with last year. Last years announcement of 2018 prices was a brutal shock to most customers, with prices spiking anywhere from 30 percent to more than 50 percent. Companies said they had to build in uncertainty they were facing from GOP efforts in Washington to repeal the ACA or undo parts of it.
