It’s unclear how many South Carolinians might be impacted by allowing people to keep insurance policies that don’t meet Affordable Care Act requirements.

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, which handles about 60 percent of the health insurance business in the state, declined to release figures on how many of its policies were going to be canceled before the change announced Thursday.

Aetna has said it mailed out cancellation notices to about 3,600 policyholders in South Carolina.
