Health Care Law -- Getting Coverage
There's a new, easy way to shop for health insurance
Every state will have a Health Insurance Marketplace where people looking for coverage can go online to shop for health insurance. The Health Insurance Marketplace will make it easier to shop for health plans in your state starting October 1, 2013.
Here’s how the marketplace will work:
-- All health plans will be listed in one place, so you can make side-by-side comparisons of the benefits and prices.
-- Insurance companies are required to describe what’s included in simple language, so there’s no guesswork about what’s covered.
-- All plans offered in the marketplace are required to cover important benefits, like doctor visits, hospital care, emergency care, prescriptions, preventive care and more.
