T-minus 10 months

In 10 months, the Affordable Care Act moves into full force.

Kenneth Munson, regional director of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, says starting in October, Wisconsin residents can enroll in the state’s health insurance exchange or marketplace. Gov. Walker opted not to create it, so the federal government is doing the job.

Munson says the marketplace will not be a physical space, but rather a service similar to shopping online for flights or hotel rooms.
