It appears that there is a possibility of huge savings from deregulation of the health insurance market to allow purchase across state lines.Why wasn't this included in the so-called "health care reforms" in Obamacare????Why??? Massive incompetence or criminal corruption???<?i>It was proposed in the House version but later removed, because the Republicans screamed bloody blue murder.For the most part, the federal government doesn't regulate insurance, the individual states do this. So there is a patchwork of 51 different insurance regulations. In order to have truely transportable insurance, there would have to be uniform insurance regulation on the federal level. However, ObamaCare does provide the ability for states to form regional exchanges so there can be some limited insurance sales across state lines if your state decides to join with other states.
