The continuing saga of the proposed changes with the Affordable Care Act is putting a lot of things in limbo, and a lot coverage providers are running for cover. Case in point, the latest company to back out of the marketplace is Aetna.

The company has recently confirmed that they will no longer be entering back into the marketplace to sell individual health plans for the said states, a move which comes shortly after dropping Virginia from their 2018 service list.
