Recap of 2020, New Mods, Rule Reminders (No Solicitation on this Sub)

Hey there, r/healthinsurance!

We here at the modteam would like to just recap a crazy 2020, introduce new moderators, and recap and restate ongoing enforced rules of the subreddit and a look forward to 2021.


New mods

To start – we brought on two new moderators to help keep tabs on our rules. Please welcome /u/NotJustAmy and u/tryin2survive! They have been recent additions to the team, following /u/zebra-stampede 8 months ago, and my self a year ago after a previous mod left the team. They bring years of industry experience to the team and we’re happy to have them on board.


Sub fun facts

We’re still a smaller sub at only 12,600+ members, ranking around #15,700 out of all subreddits and our subscriber count DOUBLED since January. We have about 50 comments per day and 14 unique posts a day and we have an awesome, helpful userbase.

Our most popular post happened back in February where this post about maternity billing hit r/bestof, reaching 348 comments, 147 of which happened on one day!

Open Enrollment was crazy as always. We saw 40 unique posts on December 14th! Anesthesiologist was our “not solicitation” word of the year with over 8000 mentions that weren’t the word solicitation.


Design choices

This was our first full year with AutoMod. We were able to leverage AutoMod to include links to COVID resources at the beginning of the pandemic and the sticky post served as reminders for Open Enrollment, to include more info like location in a post, and a quick hit for rules.

We gently expanded our flair offerings to try to encompass a myriad of topics so our community knows what they may encounter from a subject. Flair was enabled as mandatory on posts.

You may have also noticed that we took this sub to “TEXT ONLY“. We have been piloting this to see if it cuts down on various spam articles that litter the moderation log that get caught by the filter anyways, but to also add consistency to posts so we have more to go on than just a title and a picture. r/Insurance does the same, so we wanted to go for uniformity. We do not know if we will revert back to allowing links at this time.

We might also shake up the look of the subreddit with some nifty CSS in 2021.


RULES!

Going into 2021, our rules will not change at this time. As a modteam, we are continuing to filter political posts automatically out of post submission. These posts have greatly decreased as we’ve gotten closer to the end of the year, and we thank those who simply message the modteam to get their post approved rather than spamming the subreddit with a new post. No updates about Texas v California have been reported in 2-3 weeks, but our automod filter will remain.

We continue to watch for toxicity and solicitation, both of which are still not allowed. It’s shocking how many people claim “Oh I had no idea” when there’s at least 3 reminders to not try to gain business through our community.


We understand this is more of a support subreddit than a discussion subreddit, but we’re thankful for any and all industry professionals who pop in to help people with difficult situations and here’s to hopefully a great 2021!
