UHC Specialty Updates: Waiving Dental Waiting Period & Vision Network

UHC provided the following important updates on their Specialty products.


Waiving Dental Waiting Period

If a group is transferring their dental coverage to UnitedHealthcare and selected a dental plan with a waiting period for major services, they can get that waiting period waived for the initial enrolling employees if they provide the following information.

  • Proof of prior coverage for major services: This requires a benefit summary, certificate of coverage or an explanation of benefits from the prior carrier showing coverage for major services.
  • Proof of prior coverage for the proceeding plan year: This could be in the form of a renewal from the prior carrier showing coverage dates or a recent bill and a year-old bill.
