(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania state insurance regulators say subsidiaries of eight companies are signaling interest in selling health care policies through the marketplace that's being set up in the state next year under 2010's sweeping federal Affordable Care Act.

The Insurance Department released the names today, saying it has completed an initial review of the policies the companies are proposing. The department says it can't reveal how many policies the companies are proposing, and it isn't making them public because they haven't been certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The federal government will run the marketplace after Governor Corbett declined to do so.

The interested companies include all four of Pennsylvania's Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurers, Aetna, UPMC, Geisinger and Coventry Health Care. The filings include individual and small group plans.
