17th Obamacare Co-Op Exits Due to 'Hazardous Financial Condition', Only 6 Left

Obamacare is making huge progress of sorts. Of the original 23 co-op sponsors the score is 17 down and only 6 to go.

Please consider Another ObamaCare Co-Op Folds, Leaving Only 6 Remaining.

Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey is folding after the state’s insurance commissioner put the Obamacare co-op in “rehabilitation” due to its hazardous financial condition.

The co-op had a liability of $46.3 million under the Affordable Care Act’s risk adjustment program, according to the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance.

The closing will force 35,000 customers served by the New Jersey co-op to find a new plan in 2017.

The co-op was initially awarded $107.2 million in taxpayer-funded loans in 2012 and received an additional $1.9 million in 2013.

The New Jersey co-op is the 17th Obamacare co-op to collapse, joining other co-ops that have failed including two in Oregon, one each in Illinois, Connecticut, Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana and Utah, as well as a co-op that served both Iowa and Nebraska.

This leaves only six co-ops in existence of the 23 that were originally created under Obamacare.
