(KFVS)- Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has announced new Illinois health plans that will begin October 1.
The plans offered through the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace, an online place where consumers can compare all health insurance plans offered, will be in categories based on price.
Those who are currently uninsured can pick a health insurance plan through the marketplace.
Bronze will be the lowest cost while silver, gold and platinum will have the highest cost.
According to a press release from the governor's office, the rates for the benchmark plans that will be offered on the Marketplace are more than 25 percent below U.S. Health and Human Services estimates.
A six-month enrollment period for the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace will start in October and will close April 1.
