The new health insurance exchanges established by the ACA are scheduled for launch on October 1, 2013. On that date, individual consumers and Members of Congress can begin to enroll in the health exchanges, with coverage starting on January 1, 2014. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will run exchanges in 19 states; the federal government and state governments will work together on the exchanges in 15
states; and 16 states and the District of Columbia will run their own exchange. President Obama and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will hold a public conference call on Monday, September 16 to discuss the launch and to “personally reach out and thank all of the community leaders across the country who are gearing up to help millions of Americans access affordable, high quality health coverage.”
