The first time Annie Quarles tried to sign up through the health insurance marketplace in October, she spent more than two hours on the phone just to get her application in, much less pick a plan.
But when she went to see Anne Fulcher at Margaret J. Weston Community Health Center on Friday, “she just breezed through” and got her enrolled, said Quarles, 58, of Edgefield.
She likes the family plan and the $268 a month premium, which includes dental. It is offered by a nonprofit, member-owned cooperative and is available only in South Carolina….
….Quarles went with Consumers Choice Health Plan, a nonprofit that is one of 24 state-based Consumer Operated and Oriented Plans that could be created under the Affordable Care Act.
