(WFLX) - Open enrollment for the health insurance exchanges is underway. It's the key component of the "Affordable Care Act".

The exchanges are meant to offer a marketplace for the sale and purchase of health insurance.

Coverage begins in January. Despite Tuesday being opening day, officials caution consumers that the new markets will likely not be fully operational for weeks.
