Michigan Health Insurance Marketplace to Launch October 1

Michigan’s federally operated exchange, the new regulated, competitive, consumer-friendly Health Insurance Marketplace, will open for business on Oct. 1, 2013, according to a new report released by the Michigan League for Public Policy.

The Marketplace is designed to help individuals without affordable employer coverage and small businesses compare options and purchase quality healthcare coverage. The Health Insurance Marketplace website and toll-free number (800-318-2596) are available to provide general information. Michigan-specific information will be available starting Oct. 1, 2013, when open enrollment begins.
