COLUMBIA, S.C. -- An insurance company says it's leaving South Carolina because of regulations related to health care reform.

Medical Mutual of Ohio is the parent company of the Carolina Care health plan, which covers 28,000 policyholders in South Carolina.

Byers says changes under the federal health care act that go into effect this year and next year played into the company's decision to leave South Carolina.
