LANSING, MI (WTVB) - When Michigan's health insurance exchange opens on October 1st, there could be at least 14 companies available to choose from for coverage. The "Detroit News" reports 14 companies have filed the paperwork to date, but they all need to be approved by both the state and federal governments.  That isn't expected until mid-September, setting up a short timeframe for the insurance companies to get the word out before the sign-ups begin.  

A Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan executive told the "News" there is a lot of misinformation and confusion out there, and some people don't even know the exchanges will exist.
