There is paperwork for people applying for coverage on the Healthcare Marketplace, which opens for enrollment on Oct. 1. Information submitted on the official website, www.healthcare.gov, must include:
• Your Social Security number (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
• Income and employer information found on pay stubs or W-2 forms, for every member of the family needing coverage
• Policy numbers for health insurance plans currently covering you or any family member
• An employer coverage tool form available on www.healthcare.gov/subscribe. It needs to be filled out if you or any family member is eligible for job-based insurance but applying instead to go on the exchange.
