Small Group Packages Retiring in 2016
The information below summarizes the packages that we will be retiring for 2017 in the small group market. Retired packages are those packages that are no longer offered.
To achieve a more competitive portfolio, we will be changing our Univera small group product offerings. We will continue to offer the mandated state standard plans, but all other Univera valUcare packages will be retired on and off the NY State of Health Marketplace. Details of our new offerings will be provided once we receive approval from the NY State Department of Finance.
Notices for retiring packages will be mailed 90 days in advance of your 2017 renewal date; these will also include notices for you to distribute to your employees. A copy of the group discontinuance notice will be available on Information Connection at that time.
Groups enrolled in a retiring package will be automatically transitioned to the replacement package on your renewal date and no action is necessary. If you would like to elect another package, you should work with your broker or dedicated Account Manager.
Groups/Members enrolled in packages through the NY State of Health Marketplace (On Exchange) will need to choose a new plan for 2017.
Univera On Demand will be updated in September for package comparisons.
