Insurance advocates spread word on Pa. enrollmen

Updated: Sunday, September 29 2013, 07:05 PM CDT
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Enrollment in Pennsylvania's federally run health insurance exchange begins Tuesday, and advocates are ramping up efforts to teach consumers how to shop in the online marketplaces.
   
Among those helping consumers are advocacy organizations that support the law, health care professionals and not-for-profit agencies that routinely help the poor.
   
Gov. Tom Corbett's administration has remained on the sidelines during the process.
   
Still, many people don't know about it, coverage won't take effect until Jan. 1 and the first enrollment period will last until March 31.
   
So many who plan to assist people in getting coverage don't expect the gates to come crashing down immediately.
   
The targets are mostly the working poor, young people who are disengaged or those who gave up their insurance because of the cost.
