Assurant Health Announces the End of Operations

Elvis has left the building.  123 years is a long time. Reminds me of my days in financial services whenever a rep would leave the office they would send out the "your representative (insert name here) has chosen to pursue other career interests" letter.  

Assurant, Inc., has concluded the review of its health business and will exit the Individual Medical, Small Group Fully Insured and Short Term Medical markets.
  • The last day for sales of these products will be June 15, 2015.
  • The wind down of these product lines will begin immediately and we expect to substantially complete the exit by the end of 2016.
The company will meet all claims, benefits, provider payments and agent commission responsibilities during this transition.

Good luck, Assurant.

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
