The following is a message from United Healthcare announcing changes to their exchange sales and compensation for 2016:
“Over the past few months, we’ve seen an acceleration of changes in the health insurance market. UnitedHealthcare is continually evaluating all aspects of the evolving exchanges so that we can provide coverage options that best meet consumers’ health care and financial needs.
In response to market changes, it has become clear that we must adjust our commission schedules for our 2016 individual on-exchange business in certain states to better align with the demands of the marketplace. New schedules have been posted on E-Store. The commission changes will be effective for business received as of Tues. Nov. 17, 2015 and after.
These adjustments are consistent with our long-stated approach to carefully evaluate and better understand the dynamics of exchanges as they have become clearer over time, and enable us to continue offering consumers a range of quality health plans. Today’s changes do not affect our members, their networks, plan benefits or the servicing of their plans.
A key factor in our success is the relationship with agents like you who offer our products. We value this strong relationship and know that consumers also find value in the professional services you provide, especially in this complex market.
Thank you for your business and also your patience as we implement these changes.”
