“Obamacare” Countdown Gets Under Way

With fewer than 100 days before uninsured Americans can sign up for health care, the Obama administration says it’s gearing up with new call centers, a revamped website — and a call to the NFL.

Officials said Monday they’re talking to professional sports leagues — including the NFL — about partnering to publicize the benefits of President Barack Obama’s health overhaul. No deals yet.

Starting Oct. 1, consumers will be able to go online to healthcare.gov and compare private insurance plans. Those who don’t have job-based coverage can use the online marketplace to apply for tax credits to help pay their premiums.

It’s the biggest expansion of the social safety net since Medicare. And despite concerns about delays, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says it’s on schedule.
