The Kaiser Family Foundation recently released a report that evaluates the competitiveness of states' existing individual and small group health insurance markets.

The individual health insurance market in 30 states was dominated (50% market share or greater) by a single health insurance carrier in 2010.  The small group market consisted of 26 states will greater than 50% market share.
