UPDATED: Do we need an odometer for UnitedHealthcare State Dropouts?
UnitedHealthcare is operating on the ACA exchanges in 34 states this year. I assumed that they'd announce which states they were staying in or dropping out of all at once during yesterday's quarterly earnings conference call, but apparently not. Instead, the status of each state has been dribbling out one by one over the past week or two.
Zachery Tracer is doing a great job of keeping track over at Bloomberg News.
As of this writing, Tracer has the drop-out list up to
18 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 states, including:
- California (new)
- Indiana (new)
- Iowa (new)
- Kentucky (new)
- Mississippi (new)
- New Jersey (new)
- North Carolina
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
Meanwhile, the list of states United WILL be available in includes:
- New York
- Virginia (probably...at least, they submitted rate filings for HMOs for 2017)
Still unknown are:
...and several other states (there's not an exact overlap between the states above and the table I posted the other day, so I'm not sure where the confusion lies)
UPDATE: Ah, thanks to Zach for pointing out that Kaiser Family Foundation has the full list; I've updated the "Unknown" status list above...
UPDATE 4/25/16: Tracer says Iowa has been added to the "drop-out" list.
UPDATE 4/25/16: Annnnnd there goes Kentucky.
UPDATE 5/18/16: Cross New Jersey off the list.
UPDATE 6/01/16: Cross California off the list.
