Stepping into the Breach: Preventing Bare Counties for 2018

11.2017 / By Urban Institute

This report examines six states that faced the prospect of bare counties for 2018: Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Washington.

Interviews with insurers and state regulators provide insights into how they confronted the threat of bare counties.
