But more choice? Competition? Not for us. We are moving to a rural area with only 1 provider staying around in the post ACA world. It is my understanding this is not unusual in rural areas. Fortunately we are pretty healthy, but I sure hope some of those other health care providers come back to play when they have a better feel for the ACA.

Obamacare requires that exchanges offer at least one "Multi-State plan" to combat that lack of competition in rural areas, but it will take a year or two before it's fully implemented.

The "Multi-State plans" will be similar to what's offered Federal Gov't employees.
