On October 1, the healthcare exchange - Covered California - will open enrollment. That date also marks enrollment for the newly expanded Medicaid - or MediCal here in California - the state-sponsored health insurance for low-income people.

So it's time for another in our regular series of explainers on healthcare, "Ask Emily" - Emily Bazar, senior writer for the California Healthcare Foundation Center for Health Reporting.

She joins us biweekly to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act - also known as Obamacare.

If you have questions for Emily about the ACA, leave them in the comments or tweet us, @TakeTwo.
