There is a trend occuring in health insurance markets across the United States, with insurance companies choosing not to participate since the passing of the Affordable Care Act. This is resulting in fewer insurance companies conducting business in each state. In this paper, we examine what specific factors are causing these firms to cease their operations in certain state markets. In our analysis, we discover that the two biggest pieces of legislation affecting these decisions and driving health insurers out of the markets are the dependent and individual mandates.
