Hancock County will have two “Obamacare” insurance carriers in 2018. The Courier reports the state announced on Monday that Medical Mutual of Ohio and Molina Health Care of Ohio will offer plans to people not covered through their place of work.
Before Monday it appeared there wouldn’t be any companies offering plans in Hancock County through the health care marketplace. Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is the only provider right now. Earlier this summer the company announced it would no longer offer plans on the marketplace.
The Ohio Department of Insurance says five major Ohio health insurance providers have signed on to provide plans for 19 of the 20 Ohio counties that didn’t have any plans lined up for next year. Paulding County is the only county still looking for a provider.
