The Obamacare Implosion Continues

Written by Joe Scudder

The Obamacare implosion is seen in the counties that will have only one Obamacare option and in the ones that will have none.

The Republicans did not repeal or replace, so the Obamacare implosion continues. Not only will over thirteen hundred counties only have one insurer, also fifty won’t have any insurer. That means that there will be 27,660 people required to buy insurance when there won’t be any way to do so.

What a mess!

According to a CNS News post, “1,332 Counties Will Have Only One Health Insurer Option Under Obamacare in 2018.

According to recent data released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), in 2018, 1,332 counties in the United States will have only one health insurer operating on the Obamacare exchanges and 49 will have none.

The data comes from the Health Insurance Exchanges Issuer County Map, which shows projected issuer participation on the Health Insurance Exchanges in 2018 based on the issuer public announcements made prior to late July of 2017.
