Health Insurance Marketplace

October 1st starts the beginning of the enrollment period for individuals to obtain health insurance through the newly launched Health Insurance Marketplaces, also known as Health Insurance Exchanges. The process of obtaining insurance through the Marketplace varies by state.  Since Missouri  opted out of setting up its own health insurance exchange, and Missouri will be using the federally facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace. How this will affect individual insurance options varies widely depending on how you currently obtain your health insurance.
