What is the health insurance marketplace or exchange?
An exchange is an online marketplace that will provide health insurance options to consumers. The exchange will allow consumers (individuals and small businesses initially) to compare what plans cover, what providers are covered, how deductible and components are different across plans and how plans compare on key quality measures. The Health Insurance Marketplace is available at www.healthcare.gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596
