I know that the networks for Assurant's plans differ by region. The regions may have multiple networks (chosen by the insured I guess) and they have different rates. I got this info from their state rate filing. They are not participating on the exchange.
Region rates will be different with all companies. It is one of the rating factors allowed by the law.
I believe Anthem, Coordinated Care, and MDwise will be the main companies on the exchange. The latter two are Medicaid HMOs. So not much of a chance of working with them.
United Healthcare and IHC have not submitted a rate filing yet. Celtic will have an off exchange plan, but the filing is not finalized or available yet.
