The nation’s greatest health-care insurer, UnitedHealthcare, will exit the Affordable Care Act marketplace in Arizona next year, a move that will decrease or eradicate options for consumers to purchase subsidized plans in more than half of the state’s counties.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona also said it will evaluate “all options,” involving discontinuing marketplace plans, in some counties for coverage that starts Jan. 1, 2017.
UnitedHealthcare and Blue Cross Blue Shield are the mere health-care insurers that sold marketplace plans in every Arizona County this year. If Blue Cross Blue Shield also drops marketplace plans in few rural counties, it could leave consumers in those counties without a way to get subsidized health-care insurance.
