The package that will no longer be offered is classified as Uniform Modifications by the NY State Department of Finance.  

Converting into a Univera Access plan is classified as Uniform Modifications by the NY State Department of Finance.  

Details of a Uniform Modification include:

  • Impacted groups DID NOT receive an Initial Rate Notice in June.
  • Impacted groups WILL receive an Annual Rate Notice (ARN) 60 days prior to their renewal date.
  • For groups with access to Information Connection a copy of the ARN will be available at that time.
  • The ARN will include the new Univera Access plan name.
  • Groups and members will automatically transition into the Univera Access package on the group’s renewal date.   
  • If the group would like to elect a different package, you should work with your dedicated Account Manager.
