Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — You've heard that shopping for health insurance under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul will be like using Travelocity or Amazon.

But the deadline crunch is causing some states to delay online tools that could make it easier for consumers to find the right health plan.

The administration says consumers will like what they see. Others see a work in progress.

Consumers will be able to sign up starting in October, but benefits don't kick in until January 1.
