DES MOINES — Iowa's regulatory authority on the state's insurance industry has announced plans to dispatch experts around the state to help residents understand the new health insurance marketplace.
The Iowa Insurance Division announced Monday that it and its partners will lead town hall presentations about the marketplace beginning this month. The first is scheduled Sept. 21 in Des Moines.
Open enrollment for the federal marketplace begins Oct. 1 and continues through the end of March 2014.
Federal and state officials are jointly developing Iowa's marketplace.
