CMS: 63 counties will have no insurer participating in ACA exchanges

Sixty-three counties nationwide are expected to lack a health insurer selling policies on the 2018 ACA exchanges as of Sept. 13, CMS said.

The bare counties are located in Maryland and Virginia. CMS predicts more than 70,000 Americans could be affected if no insurer enters the market.

Another 1,472 counties, reflecting more than 45 percent of all U.S. counties, may see only one insurer participating on the exchanges next year.
