With insurance rates for all carriers expected to increase an average of 13.2% in 2017 and Molina only going up around 3.6%, we anticipate Molina to take more market share in the next Open Enrollment Period.
Santa Rosa, CA (PRWEB) August 16, 2016
Recently, Health For California Insurance Center, one of Covered California’s top-selling certified insurance agencies, hosted Edward Martinez and Juan Gallardo, co-owners of HealthCare Access, a general agency for Molina Healthcare, one of the fastest growing carriers for Covered California.
Prior to 2016, Molina was not a big seller on the California Health Exchange. But during the 2016 Covered California open enrollment period, a large number of consumers switched to Molina because they offered the most competitive rates, which is one of the main deciding factors for consumers when selecting a health plan.
“With insurance rates for all carriers expected to increase an average of 13.2% in 2017 and Molina only going up around 3.6%, we anticipate Molina to take more market share in the next Open Enrollment Period. As far as the future, Molina will likely begin to dominate sales through the Exchange, especially if their rates continue to out-perform the other carriers and they continue to add strong commercial medical groups like Regal,” said John Hansen, CEO of Health for California. “It was extremely helpful for Juan and Edward to educate us on Molina services and medical groups so that, in turn, we can educate consumers,” he added.
