Two states, different experiences under health care law
USA Today

For a 50-year-old nonsmoker in Mississippi’s most populous county, the least expensive health plan in the federal insurance marketplace costs $385 a month, nearly 40% higher than its equivalent in Kentucky. There, the same person can find a mid-range, or Silver plan, for as little as $278 a month. The annual savings between those two plans could purchase a new Apple MacBook Pro laptop, for example, or six weeks of groceries for the average family of four.
