Much of Rural Nevada Left With Zero ObamaCare Options in 2018 | Fox News Insider

Anthem announced it will back out of Nevada’s ObamaCare market next year, leaving most rural Nevada counties without a single ObamaCare insurer in 2018.

The insurance company also plans to cut its Georgia presence in half, and has already withdrawn from Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and much of California.

“This is a significant blow to the state’s individual market,” Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) said in a statement. He added that he is “frustrated and disappointed” by Anthem’s “surprise and abrupt decision to leave the healthcare exchange.”

As many as 868,000 people nationally could lose coverage next year if the insurance companies planning to leave the Affordable Care Act markets do so. Seventeen counties nationally, 14 of them in Nevada will completely lose options in the Affordable Care Act next year.
