Insurer found for last Ohio county off exchange

Written on Sep 08, 2017

Ohio's insurance department says the lone county in the nation at risk of going without an insurer to offer care under the federal health law has landed a provider.

The department announced that CareSource will provide health insurance coverage in Paulding County next year.

Gov. Kasich has helped spearhead bipartisan efforts aimed at stabilizing insurance markets.

The most recent analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation identified Paulding as the final county at risk of lacking a provider when 2018 signups begin Nov. 1.

Earlier this year, well over 40 mostly rural counties faced the prospect of having no options for exchanges created under President Obama's Affordable Care Act.
