    That would require 50 different diaries.

    Some states do the equivalent of 'essential coverage' well, many do not, some are awful... not to mention, most state agencies overseeing insurance aren't even gnats compared to the elephant that is HHS.

    This is the first federal attempt at meaningfully defining minimum coverage outside of contracted plans via Medicare (Part D, Advantage).

    Most of the junk policies you'll find are in states that don't do the oversight very well.

    I guess everyone's got their own blog now.
