UHC Jumps in the Pol

The MEWA pool that is:

"Previously only available to larger employers, the Ohio Chamber Health Benefit Program now provides small businesses access to features from UnitedHealthcare Primary Advantage® plans."

Like its competitors from Anthem and Medical Mutual of Ohio, this plan (which is yet to be released in the wild) will require membership in a local Chamber of Commerce, and will likely offer the potential of better rates than off-the-shelf ObamaGroup plans.

How's that, you ask?

Well, unlike ACA plans, these are medically underwritten, so healthier groups benefit from actual risk assessment (instead of one-size-fits-all Community Rating).

So far, though, it's vaporware.

Will be interesting to see how it stacks up with already established plans.
