You can find this in our Resource Center.  Search “company = United Healthcare and resource = Agent Guide” and it will pull up.

No, they are not approved by CMS, but we do have one piece of good news and one piece of not so good news.

See our Coventry Commissions Page for more details!

  • There will be an increase on PFFS renewals for business sold in 07 and 08 and renewing in 09.
  • Coventry will be discontinuing commissions on future business for the Coventry Freedom 1 series (1 and 1B).  This will not affect any business already sold and this will not affect any other products.  (see page for details on dates, etc.)

Details on the % increases for these plans are available to insurance agents registered with our website by logging into Agent Gateway, selecting Humana as company and “Rates” as the Resource Type along with the applicable state.
