Ted Cruz's Hope For Selling Health Insurance Across State Lines Gets Second Look In ACA Overhaul

A long-held GOP goal of allowing Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines could be closer to reality, if Republicans including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz have their way.
Cruz, who with Sen. John Cornyn is part of a group crafting legislation to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, has called for Congress to include cross-state sales in the overhaul.
The former presidential candidate has long advocated for Americans to be able to purchase insurance outside their own states. He says it’s a critical step lawmakers can take to increase competition, give consumers greater choice to buy only what they want, and thus lower premium costs.
“This would create a true 50-state marketplace, driving down costs for everyone,” Cruz wrote in a March Politico editorial about overhauling Obamacare. “If they so desire, consumers should be able to purchase low-cost catastrophic insurance on a nationwide market.”
