Lindeen: Health Insurance on MT's Obamacare marketplace competitive
The country has just a few more months before many of the major elements of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, go into effect. This includes a requirement for Americans to buy health insurance, starting the first of the year.
An online marketplace will be giving Montanans without insurance options to buy plans from one of three providers. In this Feature Interview, Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce speaks with Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance Monica Lindeen about choices people will have regarding the marketplace.
Plan prices from the three providers that will be on the marketplace were released Monday.
Lindeen said she was pleasantly surprised to see rumors of dramatic price increases under the Affordable Care Act are not happening in Montana.
