Rate Improvements beginning August 1, 2012
In February, HealthPlus and the Michigan Association of Insurance Agents (MAIA) partnered to create six custom PPO plans which can only be sold by MAIA agents who are HealthPlus-appointed. Effective August 1, HealthPlus is making rate improvements that could be beneficial to these plans.
Small employer groups (2-50 eligible subscribers) may see a reduction in PPO new business and renewal quotes beginning with August 1, 2012 effective dates. HealthPlus has reduced the base rates on all small group benefit plans. On average, the PPO rates will receive a 10% reduction. MAIA agents who are HealthPlus-appointed are encouraged to go to our online rating module and re-run quotes with an August 1st effective date or later that were generated prior to June 4, 2012.
