ACA multistate program not sparking competition
A program meant to beef up competition on Obamacare exchanges may not add much to the mix of insurance options after all.

The problem is that the only insurers likely to be able to quickly scale up coverage across the country are already doing just that: selling their plans from coast to coast.
