CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) -- Big contractors who will launch new insurance markets for Obamacare next month, are telling Congress things look good for the Oct. 1 debut of the new health care law.
And, the largest health insurer in Tennessee says it's working to get more information to those who will need to get coverage by January 1st.
Groups are organized all over the country to educate Americans about the Affordable Health Care Act.
"Do you have health insurance? No, not yet. "
Beginning in January, if you don't get health insurance you can be fined up to 95-dollars.
BlueCross BlueShield says its trying to be pro-active and cut through the confusion.
KELLY ALLEN, BLUE CROSS OF TENNESSEE "If you don't have health insurance there are a lot of opportunities to have it, and to have financial help in paying for that coverage."
The government's goal is to enroll 7-million Americans in the health care exchanges by next spring.
KELLY ALLEN "You can go on to the website that the government is going to be hosting, and go through that process..see if you're eligible for financial aid..and compare all the different options for coverage that are available."
Among uninsured Americans 62% say they don have enough information about how Obamacare will affect them.
KELLY ALLEN "If you don't make a lot of money you could pay as little as 50 to 100 dollars a month for your insurance premium."
A single person making up to 46-thousand dollars a year..and a family of 4 making up to 94-thousand dollars a year are eligible for at least some financial help toward premiums.
KELLY ALLEN "We're here to help you, we're going to get you through this...you can have coverage."
Under Obamacare, there's no extra cost for maternity coverage, no charge for annual checkup.
KELLY ALLEN "IF you have coverage through your employer, you probably won't see any significant changes." "Most people who have coverage now, are not eligible to shop on the market place."
But, there's still plenty of confusion about the health care act, and businesses are waiting to see how it may affect them.
Shipping giant UPS announced last month it will drop spouses from its health care plan, to save 60-million dollars a year.
