Analysis: Modest Effect If UnitedHealth Withdraws From Exchanges
National Public Radio

Insurance giant United Healthcare Group has griped that the Obamacare insurance exchanges for health coverage are money-losers and has threatened to stop selling plans on them.

United Healthcare’s latest move is to drop out of the Obamacare insurance market in Oklahoma in 2017. It’s the fourth state that the company is abandoning because it says selling insurance plans on exchanges there is unprofitable.

United Healthcare has already said it’s pulling out of the exchanges in Michigan, Arkansas and parts of Georgia.
