The Affordable Care Act’s online health insurance marketplaces launched across the country on Tuesday. Each state is required to have a marketplace as part of the ACA. The sites are where people can shop for a health insurance plan and figure out if they qualify for a subsidy to help pay for it. Under the health care law, nearly everyone in the country is required to have health insurance starting Jan. 1. Today’s guests are here to answer questions about how to sign up for coverage.
