LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Thousands of Michigan residents are being forced to wait for benefits because of glitches in the healthcare.gov website.

About 84,000 residents who qualify haven't had Medicaid applications processed because Michigan hasn't received them from the federal government.

The issue is expected to continue affecting low-income adults who will start qualifying for Medicaid next month under the new healthcare law.

Michigan's Department of Community Health is now trying to contact people who may have applied online to do so again through the state website.

Remember, Newschannel 3 is helping you navigate the Affordable Care Act. We've compiled several resources on our website.

There are just 14-days left to sign up. If you're uninsured and need help, check out the "Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment Night," Tuesday in Kalamazoo.

It runs from 5:00 until 9:00 p.m. at the Planned Parenthood on West Michigan Avenue.

No appointment is necessary, but if you plan on showing up, organizers suggest you bring a few things including your Social Security Number, income information and policy numbers of any current health insurance plans.
