INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Department of Insurance Commissioner Stephen W. Robertson recently approved a request from UnitedHealthcare to provide financial relief to commercial fully insured individual (excluding student) and group health plan policyholders in the form of premium forgiveness credits. T
he premium forgiveness credits program ranges from 5%-10% for major medical plans and 50% for dental.
The credit will be applied against the May premium; most customers will see the credit on their July premium invoice, reducing the premium amount paid by customers for that month. The credit is not conditional on sale or renewal of coverage.
“I want to personally thank UnitedHealthcare for stepping up to help Hoosiers by offering premium forgiveness credits and other programs during this pandemic,” said Commissioner Robertson.
