Nearly half of which have States decided, to their own health care Exchange set up, will have a State-run option while residents in other States.

Rocky King spent almost two years getting ready for Oct. 1.

King is executive Director of CoverOregon, which will provide coverage State, online Exchange, health care for individuals, families and businesses with fewer than 50 employees. In the past two years, he has overseen the Exchange computer infrastructure, personnel and training-community partners.

"It was incredible", says King. "We have staff who did 40 to 50 of this training in the past two months, and they are tired."

It is the latest and one of the largest stages of health care reform, health insurance through a network of State and federal marketplaces to an estimated five Americans younger than 65, who currently do not have the coverage extend.

Under the new system if you are not insured or just shopping for better insurance, depends on the type of coverage available in large part where you live.

A total of 23 States run their own exchanges or to offer a partnership with the Federal Government to State hybrid Exchange. The remaining 27 States opted out running their own programs, so residents of those States that will have possibility of registration by the State-run Exchange.

While some Republicans still fight for Obamacare defund, this scenario is considered unlikely. Instead, open registration for individuals and families in a State to start nationwide Exchange as planned and executed by March 30 for cover from 2014.

Registration for small businesses will open on Oct. 1 and will remain indefinitely, no matter where the business is located. By 2015, to provide businesses with more than 50 employees to insurance companies have or will have to pay a fee of $2,000 per employee (excluding the first 30 employees).

Own Exchange States like Oregon, Washington and New York have millions of dollars in federal funds on infrastructure run the marketplaces as well as campaigns to raise awareness, to publish it.

Introduced this week for example, in the State of Washington, chance, a fictional young girl and star of a campaign $13 million inhabitants there wanted to familiarize with its insurance online Exchange, Healthplanfinder. Washington turned more than 1,000 insurance brokers, are trained and licensed people to evaluate plans to help.

Residents of New York can buy new stock insurance through existing and new providers to the State. A new entrant is a cooperative, which plan will provide coverage plus a catastrophic, high deductible like other four levels of support, health insurance of Republic of New York. That co-op claims that their premiums among the lowest offered, ranging from an average $423,64 per month for a "Platinum" plan a single adults up to $173,54 per month for the catastrophic coverage.

Oregon CoverOregon total will offer 102 plans through 11, although most people for a much smaller number of plans into consideration. Under a standard plan, "Silver" would a family of four with an annual income of $32.499, $35.324 $81 to $118 in monthly premiums, with $10 health coverage for doctor visits and $5 pay for health coverage for generic drugs. Families with low incomes receive subsidized insurance and qualify may also for Medicaid, tax credits or other financial support.

No one expects an immediate rush of applications. King estimates that 217,000 people in CoverOregons to register commercial insurance during the first year and an another 200,000 in Medicaid. "Each State we have expected low registration in October", King says. "they go and browse and shop and find out what they are eligible for funding."

In many States, the decision was whether to create politically charged exchanges of State. In Idaho, the State operates an own Exchange despite the widespread opposition to the program. "People in Idaho don't, trust the State Government but they trust Washington, D.C., still less" Eagle, Idaho, bar owner stated in a report of Kaiser Health News/United States today.

Florida rejected extension million funds for health care because of political opposition to Obamacare. The State passed a law to create a health insurance exchange in 2008, but it has not met not open requirements for business and currently Federal Republic. State residents must want to login so the Federal Exchange to work.

Here is a list of which States have their own Exchange and be instructed the Federal Republic Exchange according to Kaiser Family Foundation:
