    ... would be to prohibit insurers from writing new individual policies outside the exchange. If you had a plan in 2013, you can keep it. However, if you drop that plan, you are forced into the exchanges.

      It's a transitional step only.  It doesn't change the future it just makes it somewhat more gradual.  Most insurers don't really want to continue these policies and part of me hopes their highly visible cancellation notices backfire for their bottom line.

        I do believe that given more time and experience with the new system, most will move into the exchanges.
