IU Health Plans Leaving Health Insurance Marketplace

IU Health PlansA letter was sent to brokers, agents, and navigators  regarding the IU Health Plans that were offered during 2016 in the state of Indiana. It is sad day as many Indiana residents will lose their ON-Exchange Marketplace / Obamacare coverage on 12/31/2016. Here are some of the Key Points:

IU Health Plans Exit Exchange

As an important partner with Indiana University Health Plans we’ve promised you transparency, so we want to ensure you are among the first to know about an important and unexpected change we’re making to our Marketplace strategy for 2017.

In light of impending regulatory deadlines and continued volatility in the Marketplace, an organizational decision was made to change the IU Health Plans level of participation in Indiana’s Marketplace. Effective for 2017 coverage, we will only be offering plans off-exchange, so consumers will only be able to enroll directly through IU Health Plans website to receive coverage. This shift will allow us to re-assess Marketplace dynamics and consider federal response to competitor withdrawals.” Allie Billows
