UnitedHealth to exit Indiana ACA exchanges in 2017

UnitedHealth is leaving one more state's Affordable Care Act exchanges in 2017, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.

In mid-April, the health insurer announced its plans to exit most ACA exchanges in 2017 and remain only in a "handful" of states. Since then, it's dropped out of the marketplace in a total of seven states: Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland and now Indiana.

"We will not be offering individual exchange plans in 2017 in Indiana," UnitedHealth spokeswoman Maria Gordon Shydlo said in an email, according to the report. "This change does not affect our commercial and Medicare plans."

UnitedHealth sold ACA plans on the Indiana exchange through Indianapolis-based All Savers Insurance.

The Indiana Department of Insurance also said UnitedHealth will not sell individual plans off the ACA marketplace, according to the report.
