United Healthcare Service Fee Compensation Changes

Broker Connection Special Edition

Service Fee Compensation Changes Announced for Georgia and North Carolina

As previously announced, 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 Georgia and North Carolina, 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 July 1, 2017. Compensation for all new cases in Georgia and North Carolina with effective dates on or after July 1, 2017, will be through a service fee. Existing cases in Georgia and North Carolina will convert to a service fee on their first renewal date on or after July 1, 2017.

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.

April 19 Broker Meeting Scheduled
Georgia and North Carolina brokers may attend a WebEx on Wednesday, April 19 at 11 a.m. ET. You may participate by clicking on the WebEx link: (Meeting Number: 828 228 523; Meeting Password: service). You may participate by phone only, by dialing (866) 216-6835 (Access Code 300350)
