Insurance companies have until November 5th to decide which of the plans they submitted, and were approved by state and federal regulators, to offer beginning November 15th.

Andrea Miller is with the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services. She says the department’s Health Insurance Consumer Assistance Program website can help consumers start planning for picking or renewing their insurance policy.

“There is a lot of information on there that might help some consumers right now,” says Miller.

The department will soon add a rate “estimator” and potential federal tax credits.

More than a quarter million Michiganders signed up for health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act marketplace website in the first round.
