Only one country in US remains without an Obamacare insurer for 2018

  • There has been a steady decrease in the number of counties at risk of having no Obamacare plans next year.
  • There had been 82 counties containing 92,000 Obamacare customers that were at risk of having no individual health plans offered in 2018.
  • Currently, there are fewer than 350 people who buy such plans in the only county still at risk of not having an And there was just one.

    The entire United States, with the exception of a single small county in Ohio, is now on track to have at least one insurer offering Obamacare health coverage next year.

    That's a big change from earlier this summer when at different times a total of 82 counties lacked commitments from insurers who sell individual health plans for 2018.

    And the continued decline in "bare counties" provides more ammunition for Obamacare advocates arguing against Trump administration claims that the health-care program is failing and needs to be replaced immediately.

    The latest potential bare area to get coverage offered for next year was Menominee County in Wisconsin, where just 47 people buy Obamacare plans on the federal marketplace HealthCare.gov.

    Elizabeth Hizmi, a spokeswoman for Wisconsin's insurance commissioner, would not identify the insurer that in recent days agreed to sell plans in Menominee, saying "at this time, service areas are not public." in 2018.
