HELENA, Mont. — Officials with both the state and the insurance industry say they are excited for the federal health care exchanges to kick off on Tuesday.
But they are telling consumers there is no reason to rush onto the health insurance exchanges, or marketplaces, since coverage under the federal law doesn't start until later this year.
Insurance Commissioner Monica Lindeen says it is reasonable to expect some glitches at the start. She expects consumers will wisely start checking out the prices Tuesday, but wait to buy.
Rates vary with various deductibles and costs are available from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana, PacificSource and the Montana Health CO-OP.
For instance, one of the cheaper "bronze" plans ranges from $117 a month for children to $330 for those over 50.
