Health Care iStock_000015278853XSmall

Under the new health care law, or Obamacare, each state will have an online health care marketplace (also known as an exchange) where people can shop for health insurance. These online health insurance marketplaces are designed to help you compare plan options and purchase the plan that fits your health care needs and budget.

Quick Tip: Did you know many people will be eligible for a tax credit or subsidy to help cover the cost of health insurance? Check out “What is a Health Care Subsidy?” to find out more.

The marketplaces are scheduled to open for people to compare and purchase health insurance on October 1, 2013.  Check out the links below to see information on state-by-state marketplaces.  Don’t see your state?  Check back for updates as the marketplaces continue to develop.
