State officials are warning consumers to avoid scams related to the nation's new health care law.
Open enrollment for the federally-run health insurance exchange in Ohio runs through next March. Coverage begins in January for those who select a plan by Dec. 15.
DeWine says reports of scams related to the Affordable Care Act initially surfaced in Ohio over the summer.
He urges consumers to report scams or suspicious activity to his office and the Ohio Department of Insurance.
