   The online health insurance exchanges are now open in both Missouri and Illinois.  The online marketplace is a key component of the federal health care law.  

   Illinois officials have set up their own marketplace at GetCoveredIllinois.gov.  

   Missouri voters chose to bar their government from setting up its own marketplace.  So the federal government is running the exchange for Missouri residents at Healthcare.gov.

   Consumers have until December 15th to sign up if they want coverage to start on January 1, but enrollment is open until March 31.
