I am having difficulting placing a mask on a moving object because there are no position points where I can attach motion tracking points. My goal is to show something through the mask from a layer underneath. Any advice would be appreciated.

Then animate them by hand or use mochaAE and the mocha Shape effect. Some things simply require manual labor. Of course there may be other options liek using a matte, but you need to explain better then and provide screenshots. We don't even know what version of AE you are using at this point.
Adobe After Effects CS6. An actor is wearing a doctor's mask as he is pushing a bed. His mask is falling down past his nose as he speaks briefly. I was hoping I could somehow use a raised layer underneath and have it shown through the portion where the doctor's mask should be--that way it doesn't look like it's falling down. Thank you.
Post a screenshot. I bet there's somewhere you can track the actor's face, otherwise try Mocha. Here's a useful tutorial that I think is exactly what you're looking for: Face replacement with mocha from David Torno
