In 2017 there will be only one insurer selling health care plans in the Obamacare exchanges in one-third of the country, according to an analysis from Avalere experts.
Yep, they're bailing. Well, they had to pass the bill so you could find out what's in it. And if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan. Everyone will save $2500 a year on health insurance premiums.
Ever noticed how nothing ever works out like the Democratics say it will?
Seven states—Alaska, Alabama, Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wyoming—will have only one health insurance carrier per rating region in 2017.
Experts at Avalere said there may be some sub-regional counties where no plans are offered in 2017. No insurer plans to sell coverage in Pinal Country, Arizona next year, according to a report from the Hill.
But you're required by federal law to purchase a health insurance plan. Looks like the folks in Pinal County are pretty screwed. They won't be able to buy health insurance because nobody will be offering it, so they'll have to pay a penalty to the IRS.
