ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s health insurance exchange has launched a new web site to connect with more than 1 million Minnesotans who are expected to use the new marketplace to get coverage.

The exchange is a key part of Minnesota’s effort to implement the federal health care overhaul. It will be a central place where individuals, families and small employers sign up for health insurance and receive help paying for it. About 300,000 previously uninsured Minnesotans and 200,000 small-business employees will gain coverage through the exchange.

The new site is designed to provide Minnesotans with up-to-date information about how to take advantage of the exchange. It includes a video and a benefits calculator that will tell individuals if they’re eligible for tax credits.

Open enrollment begins Oct. 1. Coverage takes effect Jan. 1.
