As previously announced, UnitedHealthcare will no longer include commissions in premium for the large group size segment in select states. In these states, we offer to collect the service fee from the customer bill and pay it directly to the provider.
In Arizona and New Mexico, we are moving to a non-commissionable basis for groups in the 51-100 employer market for fully insured medical business. Self-funded, stand-alone ancillary and stop loss coverage are not affected by this transition. This change will be implemented for groups in the 51-100 employer market for new and renewing business starting on June 1, 2019. Compensation for all new cases in Arizona and New Mexicowith effective dates on or after June 1, 2019 will be through a service fee. Existing cases in Arizona and New Mexicowill convert to a service fee on their first renewal date on or after June 1, 2019.
These changes are being made as part of a broader effort to expand transparency and align with the current service fee compensation model in the 101+ employer market.
