Columbia, S.C. -

South Carolina's second largest health insurer is pulling out of the state.

    The company says it's mainly due to the Affordable Care Act.
 About 28-thousand people in South Carolina have health insurance with the Carolina Care Plan. It is part of Medical Mutual of Ohio.
     The company says it is leaving the state because of the Affordable Care Act.

 Spokesman Ed Byers says,  "Under new regulations, which are vast and quite complex, it is in our best interest to focus on our core market of Ohio where we are headquartered and have been doing business successfully for nearly 80 years."
