SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Several area groups are helping those who are eligible to sign up for health insurance through the exchanges under the Affordable Care Act.  One is Lakeshore Community Health Center in Sheboygan.   CEO Kristin Blanchard said they received a federal grant a few months ago to pay for certified application counselors.  She said those counselors will help individuals and families through the enrollment process. They will also help direct people to insurance groups if they qualify for an exchange.  Blanchard said they also have had to deal with the problems logging into the healthcare.gov website, but she is not concerned.  She said they will see to it that people get the insurance that they need.  Blanchard said Lakeshore had received around a dozen phone calls for assistance through the first two days.
