A business owner is suffering from lung cancer. He repeatedly has tried to apply for health insurance, but continues to have problems with signing on to the healthcare.gov website. He has also called the 800 number several times to inquire about insurance coverage. He still has not received any help, only promises of what will be done to ensure he is covered.
