Obamacare has led to higher costs and fewer health insurance options for millions of Americans.The 2010 healthcare law has brought the American people rising premiums, unaffordable deductibles, fewer insurance choices, and higher taxes. President Donald J. Trump promised to repeal and replace this disaster, and that is exactly what he is working with Congress to achieve.
Under Obamacare, Americans’ health insurance options are disappearing at a startling rate. Illustrating just how dire the situation really is, the Administration recently released a county-level projection of health insurance exchange participation for 2018. The map shows that plan options will continue to decline and, in some areas, Americans will be left with no health insurance options on Obamacare exchanges.
The map below shows that forty-seven counties nationwide are currently projected to have no insurers, meaning that Americans in these counties could be without coverage from the exchanges next year. In more than 1,200 counties – nearly 40% of counties nationwide – Americans could be left with only one option and no choice of health insurance provider under Obamacare. Currently, at least 35,000 active exchange participants live in the counties projected to be without coverage in 2018, and roughly 2.4 million participants are projected to have only one issuer. It’s clear that Obamacare is an inefficient and unsustainable way to provide health insurance to the American people.
