MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A map of health insurance plans to be sold under Wisconsin's new online exchange shows that most of the state's residents will have multiple choices.

The state insurance commissioner's office provided a coverage breakdown to The Associated Press on Thursday ahead of its official release.

The online marketplace that is part of the federal health care overhaul starts taking applications in less than two weeks.

The plan provided to AP shows coverage areas for the 13 companies that will sell individual plans and nine selling group plans through the marketplace.

The list shows that people living in all 72 counties will have at least one individual provider. A majority of counties, 59, will have multiple providers available. Before Thursday, it wasn't clear how much choice consumers would have.
