Could some Mississippi counties be left out of the health exchange? “Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney says two insurers have announced offerings so far, planning to serve 46 counties. Unless more companies sign up or the existing companies expand their plans, consumers in the remaining counties won’t be able to buy health insurance through the online exchange. Coverage under those policies begins Jan. 1.” The Associated Press. Ed Note: It’s too early to say whether some Mississippi counties won’t have health exchange options. The health law includes two multi-state plans, which will sell most states next year, and could end up in Mississippi.
