UnitedHealthcare will no longer include commissions in premium for groups in the “large group” size segment in select states. In these states, as a convenience, we offer the service of collecting the service fee from the customer bill and paying it to the service provider.
In Kentucky, UnitedHealthcare is moving to a non-commissionable basis for groups in the 101+ 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 101+ employer market for new and renewing business starting on June 1, 2018. Compensation for all new cases in Kentucky with effective dates on or after June 1, 2018, will be through a service fee. Existing cases in Kentucky will convert to a service fee on their first renewal date on or after June 1, 2018.
These changes are being made as part of a broader effort to expand transparency.
