Today, we received a mention by Mr. Gaba over at the ACAsignups.net blog. Check out the full story at the link below!

 

“Get him out of my sight, Lou! I want him in town, though. He’s still under contract. I want you in town, Fink…and out of my sight.” –Barton Fink The big ACA story Thursday morning was about UnitedHealthcare announcing that while they’re still available across half the country for 2016, they may drop out of the ACA exchanges next year (2017). Furthermore, they’re cutting their marketing/promotional efforts for the exchanges and, in an additional exclusive tidbit from myself, they’ve also informed their commission-based brokerage network that they’ll be slashing their commission rates by as high as 80% for exchange-based enrollments. On top of that, they’ve even supposedly deliberately disabled various database tools used specifically by brokers to assist in helping people sign up for UHC policies through the exchanges.
