Thirteen companies will sell health insurance to individuals, while nine will sell plans to businesses. People and groups can enroll, starting Oct. 1.
Wisconsin's Insurance Commissioner's Office has released the names and locations of participating health care insurers. The agency points out that the federal government has assembled Wisconsin's exchange or marketplace. The Walker administration chose not to get involved, fearing the cost of the Affordable Care Act will eventually burden states, financially.
According to the breakdown, residents in 59 Wisconsin counties will have multiple choices of health care plans. People in the other 13 counties will have at least one provider, if they need health insurance.
