Taking a Closer Look: What is This Health Insurance Marketplace?.
Because carrying health insurance is a PPACA requirement (unless a waiver is granted). Citizens that do not qualify for Medicaid or carry private insurance will need an effective and convenient way to compare, enroll and manage their health insurance plans.
Anyone who does not have insurance through his/her employer, can’t afford coverage through their employer, or who is not covered by Medicare/Medicaid and otherwise uninsured. Those who qualify will receive a tax credit to subsidize the costs of their QHP.
Enrollment begins October 1, 2013. Coverage begins in January, 2014.
