United Health Care's Rating

AM Best rates them at A superior.  Ratings differ by state but the main carrier holds the financial responsibility

BenefitsManager.net Report (updated 5-28-04)

United HealthCare's Strengths

  • National carrier with loads of experience. 
  • Underwriting department is the most up to date and sophisticated system anywhere.  Only IHC comes close to online technology.

United HealthCare's Weakness

  • They are being held at bay by IHC.  If you want to do business in this state you ultimately have to "rent" a hospital system to give your members access to in order to control costs.  If United gets too competitive than they have networks canceled by IHC. 
  • United does not offer individual and family health insurance policies.  This is a trend they have stuck with nation wide because they recognize that they are a leader in small and large group health insurance

Projections

  • Most of our business out of the state of Utah is with either United, Humana, or Fortis.  We can tell you that United does a very good job in competitive markets where fair competition is fostered.
  • It is our hope that they can get into the Utah market and be afforded the opportunity to compete fairly in both hospital system and insurance pricing.
