Anthem scales back Obamacare offerings in Missouri


Major health insurer Anthem will scale back its presence in Missouri next year and will be in just 68 of the 85 counties where it currently offers plans.

Anthem’s decision comes amid ongoing worries about the number of Obamacare insurers that will offer coverage in 2018. About a week ago, the last “bare” county to not have any Obamacare insurer was filled with an insurer, but concerns still remain about whether there will be enough competition.

Anthem said in a statement it was pleased that the federal government has taken some steps to address “the long term challenges all health plans serving the individual market are facing.”

The individual market is used by people that don’t have an insurance plan through their job and includes Obamacare’s exchanges. Anthem said it will sell plans on and off the exchange in the 68 Missouri counties.
