HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - More information on health plans in Pennsylvania is expected to be available soon on a website that's central to the federal health care law's insurance exchange.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the information should be available by 8:00 this morning that will allow Pennsylvanians to shop in the new exchanges.
