Voice Signature Now Available in LEAN
UnitedHealthcare continues to take steps to support agents and consumers by providing virtual options to do business. Consumers now have the option to complete a UnitedHealthcare enrollment using Voice Signature in LEAN*. Voice Signature uses an individual’s recorded verbal agreement in place of a handwritten signature.
For detailed instructions on how to use Voice Signature, please review the job aid available on Learning Lab (Learning Lab>Content Library>LEAN).
*This is new for Medicare Advantage and Part D LEAN enrollments. Voice Signature and DocuSign capabilities in LEAN are also available for AARP® Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans from UnitedHealthcare®.
2021 UnitedHealthcare National Network
The UnitedHealthcare Medicare National Network was first introduced on Jan. 1, 2020, to eligible plan members (LPPO/RPPO). New for 2021, additional Medicare Advantage (MA) PPO plans and many, but not all, MA HMO and POS plans will be added to the Medicare National Network.
About National Network
National Network offers eligible members nationwide access to in-network care providers at in-network costs (network exclusions may apply). No activation or extra paperwork is required.
Most of the HMO and POS plans being added to National Network in 2021 previously had the UnitedHealth Passport® travel benefit. Please note, the Passport benefit is being removed from these plans for 2021, and impacted members will see the change from Passport to National Network in their Annual Notice of Change (ANOC).
Efficient, Faster Prescription Drug Decisions
Enhancements to the Drug Estimator Tool will streamline your discussions with members on choosing a UnitedHealthcare Medicare plan. More intuitive, with faster performance, it’s now easier than ever to compare and shop between all plans in a ZIP code.
One of your most-used tools and the one used by consumers, find it on Jarvis in Enrollments/Provider and Rx Search/ Prescription Drug Search. You can also find it when searching for plan benefits.
New Options Available for Medicare Beneficiaries with ESRD
Beginning in 2021, Medicare beneficiaries with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) will be eligible for Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, as a result of the 21st Century Cures Act.
