Created by the Affordable Care Act, Health Insurance Marketplaces, also known as Exchanges, will be set up to facilitate a more organized and competitive market for buying health insurance. Beginning in 2014, Marketplaces will serve primarily individuals buying insurance on their own and small businesses. Federal subsidies in the form of premium tax credits will be available to consumers meeting incomes requirements to make the coverage more affordable.
