UnitedHealth cuts outlook, CEO grim about Obamacare participation
CNBC

UnitedHealth chopped its 2015 earnings forecast and the nation’s largest health insurer has begun to question its future in public insurance exchanges, a key component in the nation’s health care overhaul.

The company said Thursday that it would pull back on the marketing of its exchange business a few weeks after open enrollment for that coverage began nationwide. It also said that it will decide in the first half of next year “to what extent it can continue to serve the public exchange markets in 2017.”
