More Americans live in an area where three or more health insurers sold coverage on the Affordable Care Act exchanges in 2019 compared with the year before, according to an Urban Institute analysis published Thursday.

That’s important because premiums are generally lower in places where multiple health insurers compete to sell insurance plans. But while competition on the exchanges is improving, it still isn’t on par with 2017 levels, according to the analysis.
