BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW)- Monday night at midnight, the online health insurance marketplace, or exchange, will open.
 
Under federal law, all Americans must purchase health insurance by 2014.  

On the site, you'll be able to learn about and compare coverage plans from 5 different New York based health insurance companies, before making your purchase.

If you will be insured by your employer in 2014, you can continue to be covered by your company.

There are federal subsidies available if you are unable to afford coverage.
