Nearly two-thirds of the public -- including almost three-quarters of the uninsured -- say they don't know when people will be able to begin shopping for health insurance using the new marketplaces, according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Uninsured Americans can begin shopping for health insurance tomorrow, October 1st at www.healthcare.gov. The enrollment period runs through March 31, 2014. Coverage begins January 1st.
The online insurance marketplace will be similar to shopping for a plane ticket online, experts say. Americans will be able to compare coverage and prices from different plans.
For Americans who already have insurance, there is nothing they need to do under the law. They are covered.
