ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesotans are expected to get a preview of the state's future health insurance marketplace beginning Monday when several companies show their prototypes online.
The health insurance exchange is a site where individuals and businesses can compare, choose and buy health insurance. The Department of Commerce says it hasn't seen the prototypes yet, but they should be published on the state's website by Monday afternoon.
Ceridian of Bloomington says it will have an interactive simulation of shopping on an exchange. Maximus, of Virginia, has produced a video that guides a shopper through the exchange experience. Minnesota Public Radio News reports other companies that will have online demonstrations include Deloitte, Curam, and GetInsured.com.
States have until January 1, 2013 to create their own health insurance exchanges or the federal government will establish one.
