UHC provided three important updates regarding underwriting, premium credit relief, and Employer eServices.
Underwriting Update Regarding DE-9C Requirement
Back in May, UHC made the announcement that groups with 6+ eligible will not need to provide a DE-9C. UHC is rescinding this underwriting change and this will not be an option for groups of less than 10 eligible. Groups of 1-9 lives will be required to submit a DE-9C with their case submission paperwork.
Premium Credit Relief Update
In regards to the Premium Credit Relief that was announced last month in May, California fully-insured small groups will receive 10% in premium credits.
UHC clients will see a bill-stuffer in the July bill, which arrives in June, explaining the premium relief on the statement. This is the only communication on the amount that customers will receive.
Upcoming Employer eServices Login Changes
As a reminder, Employer eServices (EeS) legacy ID fields will be removed entirely on June 19, 2020. In May, Employer eServices team emailed non-migrated users their Optum ID personalized registration instructions to continue accessing their Employer eService account(s). If users do not register via the emailed invite, they will require assistance from the Employer eServices help desk to regain site access.
