Email Insurance Commissioner Mary Taylor to Carry Over InHealth Enrollees Deductibles and Out-of-Pocket Costs

On May 26, 2016, a Franklin County court ordered that the insurer InHealth Mutual, Ohio’s only Consumer Oriented and Operated Plan (CO-OP), be liquidated. The court appointed the Ohio Insurance Commissioner Mary Taylor to be the receiver of InHealth and to continue to operate the company while it is winding down. The court order leaves 22,000 Ohio InHealth policy-holders to find new insurance. One quarter of them live in Central Ohio. You can learn more about the InHealth liquidation by clicking here. Your e-mail will be important to make sure the Insurance Commissioner knows how unfair it is that people be forced to start over through no fault of their own.

Send the following email to Insurance Comission Mary Taylor (directors.office@insurance.ohio.gov) .You can personalize the letter below, otherwise enter your name and address and click submit.

Help us convene a meeting in your community.

Policy makers must make decisions which will improve access to dental care but they need to know how the issue affects lives in your community. We will take time to discuss what is available in your community, learn where the gaps are and develop recommendations for increasing access to routine dental care. We will provide sample meeting announcements and materials and data to help frame the discussion. We will also be available to either facilitate the discussion or act as a presenter.

Please contact David Maywhoor, Project Director at 614-456-0060 ext.225 or dmaywhoor@uhcanohio.org to begin the process.
