Beginning with January 1st 2013 effective dates, Oxford will no longer be offering prior carrier deductible credits for small groups in New York. This change affects both UnitedHealthCare and Oxford small groups in NY, and applies to both in network and out of network deductibles.
Deductible credits (where previously approved in some cases) allowed a new hire enrolling in an Oxford plan to carry over some or all of a subscriber’s deductible utilization from their prior carrier for that plan/calendar year. Where Oxford used to provide deductible credits, that practice was phased out at the beginning of this month.
