Indiana residents will be getting their first serious look at the new federal health care law this week with the rollout of the exchange where uninsured residents can go to shop for coverage.
More than 500,000 residents are expected to be eligible for the new insurance options. Many residents will be able to pick a plan themselves, but some will need help from trained workers.
Navigators such as Marla Asberry of Open Door Health Services say they are ready to answer questions and help find residents the right coverage.
Thirty-four health plans will be sold in Indiana. They range in cost from less than $100 for bare-bones coverage for an individual to close to $1,000 a month for a family of four.
