Oklahomans will likely be offered plans by four companies when the state's health insurance exchange opens Oct. 1, but options and prices depend on where they live, their age and whether they smoke.
Officials have told the Tulsa World four companies applied to offer health insurance on the website known as Oklahoma's insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare." The exchanges are on track to open Oct. 1, federal officials said.
The companies are:
1. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma,
4. Coventry Health Care Inc. (acquired by Aetna in late May.)
