    so no prob there.

    How would it be a race to the bottom with protections in place?

      Assuming the ACA protections stand, then the issue that AnnieJo brought up might still be a problem.

      It would really depend on how it was written.

      But, the original intent (IMO) of allowing to buy/sell across state lines was so that purveyors of crap insurance would be free to sell it anywhere. This would put downward pressure on both quality and price in the marketplace.
