Recently, two health economists from the University of Minnesota conducted a study on how the availability of health insurance would be affected by several variables. Among the more interesting findings, the research showed that in simulations, allowing competition between insurance companies across state lines could give an additional 12 million people access to health insurance. That's a huge number a definitely an interesting thought. Keep in mind though, that this doesn't say anything about the quality of the insurance.
