Major insurance providers are opting out of Obamacare entirely in counties and states across the nation, and a new map shows exactly how dire the circumstances are becoming for consumers in many areas.

Axios gathered data from the Kaiser Family Foundation regarding insurance companies participation in the Obamacare marketplace from 2014 to 2017 and mapped the results. The interactive map illustrates the trend among insurance providers to opt out of, or greatly reduce their exposure to, the Obamacare exchanges over the first four years.

This year has been a particularly troublesome one for insurance providers. Major insurance companies’ exits from state exchanges in 2017 have left 21 percent of all Obamacare consumers with only one insurance provider to choose from in the marketplace.

Insurance companies have yet to file their plans for the Obamacare exchanges in 2018. Current projections for the 2018 Obamacare exchanges expect at least 47 counties will have no insurance provider to choose from in the marketplace.

Three of the most prominent insurers on the Obamacare exchanges are either ditching Obamacare entirely or are significantly scaling back their involvement in 2018.

UnitedHealth reduced its exposure on the exchanges significantly, cutting its participation from 34 states in 2016 to just three in 2017 — Virginia, Nevada and New York. It plans to drop Obamacare plans in Virginia in 2018. Health insurance providers Aetna and Humana are pushing one step further, completely opting out of Obamacare altogether in 2018.

    Ironically, it is the giant health care insurers who have the ability to opt out of a venture that may provide no dividends or is unaffordable for them. Citizens will still be saddled with the illegal requirement to purchase health insurance they may not want, need or be able to afford-or be subject to the punishments allowed for in the ACA. Congratulations to Mr. Obama and his obsequious minions for their dubious legacy.

    People should not have to suffer and die needlessly because they can’t afford the extreme cost of insurance , how inhumane this is what happens when everything single thing in a society is designed for fleecing revenue . The insurance companies wanted the mandate in order to charge people for not being able to afford their high cost of life . Fascism is just this when everything is privatised and businesses own everything including government.

    The “free market ” is what is driving up the cost of living it also is the cause of so many homeless people besides I don’t want some rich oligarch owning all of the public land and parks because then it becomes private property then they say who can and can’t use it ,further more insurance was expensive way before the aca and people were being denied operations because it is always about the bottom line.
