Health care exchanges open for business

Listen

Guests: Robert Field, Julie Appleby

The Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchanges are open for enrollment tomorrow.  Consumers can shop online for health care coverage and compare different plans.  But is Obamacare ready for business?  Why are so many Americans still confused about the new health care law and what it offers?  And what about the continuing efforts to derail the law by ACA opponents?  This hour, Marty talks about the ins and outs of the new health insurance marketplaces with ROBERT FIELD, Professor of Law and Professor of Health Management and Policy at the Earle Mack School of Law and School of Public Health at Drexel University, and JULIE APPLEBY,  Senior Correspondent for Kaiser Health News.
