2 – 50 group renewals on or before Oct. 1, 2016 will be able to retain their Transitional Relief plan and rates for one more year. Transitional relief is only available in those states that have approved it and where the health insurance company supports it.
Renewals after that date will need to move to a compliant plan that includes adjusted community rating and all the Essential Health Benefits as required under the Affordable Care Act.
If your November and December 2-50 clients are interested in maintaining their Transitional Relief plan for one more year they can complete United’s Attestation form to change their renewal back to Oct. 1, 2016. In order to have the renewal automated with the October block, United needs to have the completed Attestation form in their office no later than April 1, 2016.
Please work with your United HealthCare Renewal Account Executive to facilitate this process.
