Americans will begin open enrollment of the Affordable Health Care Act Oct 1.

A new rule from the Department of Health and Human Services will give consumers more choice in how they pay for insurance.

Consumers will not have to have a bank account to make payments. Instead, Qualified Health Plan issuers will be required to accept prepaid debit cards.

Insurers also will be required to accept paper checks, cashier's checks, money orders and electronic funds transfer payments.
