Arizonans without insurance can sign up Tuesday

PHOENIX (AP) - Tuesday's the day when Arizonans who don't get insurance through their jobs and make too much money to qualify for Medicaid can start signing up for insurance in new federal marketplaces.

They'll be able to check plans and prices and sign up through the federal government's healthcare.gov website. That's because Gov. Jan Brewer joined roughly three dozen other governors in deciding not to run a state marketplace.

A variety of plan levels will be available that each cover basic health care needs and pay for between 60 percent and 90 percent of the costs of doctor visits, hospitalizations and other medical services.

And people with pre-existing conditions can't be locked out of the market and won't be charged more than others their age.
