With the announcement by Covered California that UnitedHealth Group Inc. would be exiting its Obamacare exchange in 2017, the role of the nation’s largest health insurer in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has now been reduced to six states.
UnitedHealth on Tuesday informed its brokers that “at this time, we have filed to offer On-Exchange products” in Nevada, New York and Virginia for 2017, according to today’s Wall Street Journal. In addition, the insurer’s Harken Health subsidiary will be offering policies on the exchanges in Georgia, Illinois and Florida on a “limited basis.”
Currently, UnitedHealth services about 795,000 Obamacare policyholders in 34 states.
