What is a health insurance marketplace?

A health insurance marketplace for Affordable Care Act is an online marketplace where people can compare and purchase health insurance coverage that fits their needs and their budget.  Every state will have their own marketplace.  Some states will operate their own insurance marketplace.  Other state insurance marketplaces will be run by or in partnership with the federal government.

The insurance marketplace is expected to open on October 1, 2013.
