After two major health insurance companies announced they were leaving Ohio's Health Care Exchange next year, the state says it has five companies that will help pick those patients plans back up.

Residents in 19 counties were left trying to find coverage, and according to officials, Buckeye Health Plan, Caresource, Medical Mutual of Ohio, Molina Health Care and Paramount Health Care will all pick up the coverage.

Officials are still working to restore coverage to one other county, and hope to have that done by the fall.
