The Ohio Department of Insurance says the lone county in the nation at risk of going without coverage under the federal health law has landed a provider. CareSource will provide health insurance coverage in Paulding County next year. The non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation identified Paulding as the final county at risk of lacking a provider when 2018 signups begin November 1. Well over 40 mostly rural counties faced the prospect of having no options for exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act.
