TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Some uninsured New Jersey residents can begin signing up for new plans through a health insurance exchange.
The exchanges are being launched in every state Tuesday as a key part of President Barack Obama’s health insurance overhaul.
Like those in 35 other states, New Jersey’s exchange is being run by the federal government through the website healthcare.gov.
Rates for individual plans have not been published, but supporters of the marketplace say the average costs are far lower than the prices of private plans now available in the state. Many users will also be eligible for government subsidies.
It’s not clear whether there will be protests of the exchange in New Jersey on Tuesday.
