With all the talk about insurance companies exiting Obamacare, and some counties being left with 1 option or 0 options, I've been wondering about the
When Obamacare was created, some states created their own healthcare exchange, and the rest opted to use the Federal exchange. Most of those
state-run exchanges have since gone broke. The most recent was Minuteman Health, serving Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Back in June they
announced that they were only going to offer non-Obamacare-compliant plans next year, and then just last week
they were placed in receivership.
Are any of the state-run exchange still functioning?
By that, I mean that they still plan to sell ACA-compliant plans next year. It's
surprisingly hard to find accurate information about this. Much of the information I can find is badly outdated, including the info on the federal
website (which still insists that 16 states + DC have their own exchanges).
lists the following 17 exchanges as having gone
Iowa/Nebraska, Louisiana, Nevada, New York, Kentucky/West Virginia, Tennessee, Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Arizona, Michigan, Ohio,
Connecticut, Oregon (again), Illinois, and New Jersey. And you add Massachusetts/New Hampshire.
