This is one of the proposals that gets kicked around from time to time.

The resistance comes from politicians who want to mandate coverage for their favorite groups like birth control and mammograms or erectile dysfunction.

Shopping nationwide would allow some states to play the Nevada game on gambling and divorce--to make their states attractive with lower cost bare bones coverage. But politicians and special interest groups might see their influence weakened.

Let's hope it comes to pass, but we know there will be opposition.
