Optimize Sales with UnitedHealthcare

Optimize Sales with UnitedHealthcare, Carrier News,

Several popular carriers are drastically increasing prices, changing plan designs, reducing benefits, and re-certifying groups who do not meet eligibility. The solution for those groups — UnitedHealthcare (UHC), the largest national carrier with the largest provider network trusted by major corporations throughout the country.

Why UnitedHealthcare:

Price Advantage

Instead of high-deductible health plans (HDHP) and downgraded benefits, present a new approach — one that relieves cost pressures, frustrations, and complexities. Offer UHC’s sizable price advantage. Did you know that groups with Anthem or Health Net may save on their Q4 renewal by moving to UnitedHealthcare plans with similar or richer benefits?

An example of UHC’s Q3-2020 savings:

Q3-2020 Region 8 San Mateo County

Flexible Underwriting

Having trouble fitting some of your groups with the Blues? Are clients that no longer meet participation guidelines facing cancellation of coverage? No problem. UnitedHealthcare’s flexible underwriting provides a much needed solution for these groups in California and out-of-state.

California small groups qualify with:

  • 60% participation after generous individual waiver allowances.
  • 1099 contractors enrolling.
  • No DE9C’s for groups with 10+ eligible employees — anytime (not just a promotion).
  • High Kaiser Permanente participation, groups only need five CA employees on UHC and 60% total participation (between both carriers).

As the largest national carrier with the largest provider network, employees in multiple states receive excellent coverage with UHC (different underwriting guidelines apply outside of California, and vary by state).
