(WISH) – Open enrollment begins Tuesday for anyone getting health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

Three of the nation’s five largest insurers have decided to significantly pull back on their coverage. Specifically, UnitedHealth Group is reducing its coverage from 34 states in 2016 to just three in 2017.
