This enrollment opportunity is intended to provide employees and dependents the opportunity to enroll in benefits if they waived coverage previously.

Enrollment timeline and other details:

  • The enrollment opportunity will extend from March 23, 2020, to April 6, 2020.
  • Customers are not required to adopt the Special COVID-19 Enrollment Opportunity. Because of this, no opt-out action is required on their behalf. UnitedHealthcare realizes each situation is unique, and each customer must make its own decisions on the enrollment opportunity.
  • Dependents, such as spouses and children, can be added if they are enrolled in the same coverage or benefit option as the employee.
  • Standard waiting periods will be waived; however, existing eligibility and state guidelines will apply.
  • Employer eServices will allow enrollments as qualifying events and will suppress any waiting-period warning messages (these don’t show for all groups)
  • For small employers (2-50), a wage and tax statement will be needed to validate the employee’s eligibility.
  • Enrollment changes will take place effective April 1, 2020. Prior effective dates are not permitted.
  • This opportunity is limited to employees and their dependents who waived coverage at the time when they were first eligible for coverage in this plan. (not an open enrollment for enrolled employees to change plans, etc.)
