The ad buy is scheduled to run from September 30 to December 1 in large markets in Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, North Carolina, Indiana, Louisiana and Oklahoma, according to information obtained from an ad buyer by Rubio's office.

In order to answer questions and help consumers navigate the new marketplaces, HHS launched 24-hours-a-day consumer call center ready to answer questions in 150 languages, along with the detailed website HealthCare.gov.

In August, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced $67 million in grant money from the health and human services department for groups and individuals that will help Americans shop and enroll in the marketplaces this fall.

Not satisfied with the upcoming roll-out of Obamacare, the Republican National Committee on Wednesday launched a new website, ObamaCareCosts.org, that intends to inform readers with "information they can use to hold Democrats accountable for the disastrous law."

The RNC will release a web video each week of real news stories on the costs of Obamacare, according to a release about the campaign.

"We see it in the news every day now: ObamaCare is killing jobs, hurting our economy, raising premiums, and limiting healthcare access," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "It hurts the very people we were told it would help.

"With less than a month to go before this disastrous law begins to take full effect, Democrats bear sole responsibility for ObamaCare's costs," he said.
