The Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace, also called the “health exchange,” the “marketplace,” or “Obamacare,” is a federal service that helps people shop for and enroll in health insurance. The marketplace is available at HealthCare.gov for most states, but if you live in a state that has set up its own marketplace, HealthCare.gov will direct you to the correct website.
