When the new health exchange opens for business in Missouri on Oct. 1, at least three major health insurers will not be participating: UnitedHealthcare, Cigna and Assurant Health.

Other leading health insurers, Aetna and subsidiary Coventry Health Care, as well as Clayton-based Centene Corp. may also be planning to participate in the Missouri exchange.
