United Health Care

UHC’s website https://www.uhc.com/health-and-wellness/health-topics/covid-19/telehealth-options has multiple pages that explain its expanded access to telehealth visits. Medicare Advantage and Medicaid members can continue to access their existing telehealth benefit offered through one of our designated partners, without cost-sharing. For members with a telehealth benefit through their employer-sponsored plan, cost-sharing will be waived until June 18, 2020. UHC encourages customers to review their health plan account to review specific telehealth benefits at this site: https://www.uhc.com/sign-in Starting March 31, 2020 until June 18, 2020, UnitedHealthcare will waive cost-sharing for in-network, non-COVID-19 telehealth visits for its Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, Individual and Group Market fully insured health plans.

UHC’s website indicates the company will work with self-funded customers who want to implement a similar approach. The company previously announced it would waive cost-sharing for telehealth visits related to COVID-19 testing, in addition to waiving cost-sharing for 24/7 Virtual Visits with preferred telehealth partners. If you have questions about your benefits, sign in to your health plan account or call the number on your member ID card.
