UnitedHealthcare Closely Monitoring Coronavirus (COVID-19)

by | Mar 16, 2020 | Health News

We understand the urgency and sensitivity during this time, and that’s why we’re notifying you directly to let you know about recent changes to address COVID-19 and where you can find the most up-to-date information. Under these unique circumstances, we want to continue to support your needs.

Continued Support – Next Steps
UnitedHealthcare has waived all member cost sharing, including copays, coinsurance and deductibles, for COVID-19 diagnostic testing provided at approved locations, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for all commercial insured, Medicaid and Medicare members.

To help meet the needs of our members, we’ve also expanded our policies around telehealth services.

Staying Close – What You Need to Know
As with any public health issue, UnitedHealthcare will work with and follow all guidance and protocols issued by the CDC, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), state and local public health departments regarding COVID-19. For the latest news and guidance on the virus, please visit cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov.

We’ll continue to review and monitor updates from the CDC, local and global outlets and adjust our processes and websites accordingly. For UnitedHealthcare COVID-19 related resources for providers, including telehealth services, learn more at UHCprovider.com.
