DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr is working to impose changes to retiree health insurance benefits by October 1st.  That’s when the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchange online marketplaces are expected to open.

According to Orr spokesperson Bill Nowling, once the marketplace is up, consumers can begin shopping for 2014 health coverage, creating an urgent need for the city to make changes to its health insurance benefits now.  Orr has proposed a plan calling for eliminating traditional retiree insurance coverage in exchange for subsidies or prescription drug coverage.
