Healthcare in Ohio Obamacare promises to insure virtually all Americans by 2014, mandating online insurance marketplaces in each state where people and small businesses can go to compare and shop for plans. Ohio officials will let the feds set up the plan -- known as a health care exchange - for this state. We'll talk about how it will work and how to best choose coverage through the exchange, government-funded insurance or from your employer. Tomorrow morning at 9 with host Mike McIntyre on the Sound of Ideas.
