Here's what you need to know.
1. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona will be the only insurer in those counties this year.
2. In the other three counties, Arizonans will have three insurers to pick between.
3. BCBSA had originally expressed its desire to leave the marketplace, but reversed its decision upon hearing it would be the only insurer. Still CEO Richard Boals said there is financial risk.
