AUSTIN (KXAN) - Enrollment centers through Insure Central Texans are noticing improvements in the online insurance marketplace offered under the Affordable Care Act, also known as 'Obamacare'.
However, volunteers are still running into issues getting clients enrolled.
Insure Central Texas Director Elizabeth Colvin says the organization has enrolled two people who have chosen plans out of the roughly 800 it has served.
Colvin says about 100 people have reached the point where they are now deciding on a plan.
"People are getting ready to purchase insurance. And for people who haven't had insurance before this is huge -- or people who have been excluded because of a preexisting condition, this is huge," said Elizabeth Colvin, director of Insure Central Texas. "People are excited, still, about the opportunity (to get insurance) even with the frustration."
