The ACA or Obamacare Phone Number Spells Out F-Word- Disputed!

Summary of eRumor:

This is a forwarded email that alleges that the phone number on the Affordable Care Act,ACA, HealthCare.Gov, or Obamacare, website for questions spells out the F-word.

The Truth:

This appears to be an attempt at humor but the phone number in the forwarded email is not the phone number on the HealthCare.Gov website and it does not spell out (F-Word) YOU, as the eRumor alleges.
The correct number on the Healthcare.gov site  is 1-800-318-2596, which would actually spell out “F1UCKYO.”

According to an October 3,2013 article by the New York Daily News this is “a funny coincidence.”
