The Largest U.S. Health Insurer Pulls Out of Health Exchanges in Arkansas

On the 11th of April UnitedHealth Group Inc made the statement that they will not be participating in the Affordable Care Act markets in 2017. ] This latest challenge to President Obama’s health-care plan is in response to the fact that many top insurers have struggled to make a profit in the new A.C.A. (Affordable Care Act) markets. This causes great concern to us as Arkansas residents, but it also is troubling as we wait to see what other major insurers will do.

This is not meant to cause a panic, because although UnitedHealth Group Inc is the largest health insurer, they hold a relatively small amount of the market share in regard to Obamacare. We here at Childress Insurance Agency just want to keep our friends and neighbors up to date on what’s going on in the insurance world.

Health Insurance is a Must and Here’s Why . . .

The key to a happy life includes a loving family, friends and a rewarding career. None of it matters, though, if you’re not in good health. In these times of great upheaval regarding America’s health care system, being able to lean on the trusted professionals at Childress Insurance Agency, 2391 West Main Street, Suite A in Cabot, to guide you through the process of obtaining accessible, affordable insurance coverage is essential.

It is true that most people think of health insurance as a treatment for an illness, rather than a proactive way to be covered just in case you need it. The old expression “too little, too late” certainly applies to your health. So, why put off purchasing insurance and keeping your fingers (maybe even your toes) crossed that nothing goes wrong? The answer is an easy one –

Think of it this way – if you’ve been free of disease and/or medical issue, the importance of health insurance only rises. Why? Quite simply, one late night visit to the local emergency room accompanied by a prescription can leave you with financial stress unlike any before. With an insurance card in tow, you significantly reduce that hardship. Most people without coverage don’t give it a second thought until emergency surgery is required or even something as routine as a flu shot. Think ahead, not after the fact.

Facing the often-daunting task of paying medical bills without insurance means you are at a clear disadvantage in negotiating payment terms and the like. However, withinsurance you don’t have to maneuver things alone. Your local agent is the go-to person for everything from submitting claims to securing payment for your pain and suffering. Look to your agent as a trusted, prepared individual equipped to protect your interests. Whether you call us (501) 941-1148 or visit online at, the result will be the same high quality and service!

Making the decision to be insured is a big step, but so is choosing the right agent. At Childress Insurance Agency, we pride ourselves on being able to tap into countless sources of coverage to suit your needs and not a one-size-fits-all impersonal approach. You will no doubt have many questions. We will work tirelessly to provide answers. Many Americans are unsure as to what the new Affordable Care Act means to them. We understand and will do our level best to give you the most accurate, reliable information about it so you can make the right decision.

Finally, it would not be responsible of us to pretend as if health insurance has no costs tied to it. Bills are bills. But again, thinking ahead and taking the initiative by purchasing a plan will make those bills far less painful. After all, isn’t the point to keep pain in check? Call today – (501) 941-1148 – or get to know us via the Internet, It will be the best decision you can make!
