MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabamians looking for health insurance will likely have more choices in the second year of the insurance marketplace.

A spokesman for the state insurance department said Monday that United Healthcare has filed plans with state and federal regulators to offer coverage in all 67 counties during the second year of the program. United Healthcare did not offer individual plans in any county during the first year.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama says it again intends to offer individual plans in all 67 of the state's counties. Humana has applied to continue offering plans in the three counties it serves now: Jefferson, Shelby and Madison.

Open enrollment for the second year begins Nov. 15.
