To assist in accessing care in light of COVID-19, UnitedHealthcare, is providing employers a special COVID-19 opportunity to enroll employees who previously did not enroll in coverage. This opportunity is limited to those employees who previously did not elect coverage for themselves (spouses or children) or waived coverage.

The enrollment opportunity will extend until April 6, 2020. Effective date is April 1. Dependents, such as spouses and children, can be added if they are enrolled in the same coverage or benefit option as the employee.

If you have employees that have inquired whether or not they can enroll now for coverage, this may be an option. Please reach out to us if you would like more information.

We will continue to share information as it becomes available and keep you informed.
