Aug 18, 2016 3:46 PM
Some of the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplaces are in turmoil as the fourth open enrollment season approaches this fall, but what’s ahead for consumers very much depends on where they live.

The study specifically focuses on how many medical prescriptions they filled.
