UnitedHealthcare (UHC) will be issuing reimbursements directly to retirees who have had at least one prescription drug administered by a health care provider which is classified as a Medicare Part B service, such as an injectable. Members may have improperly paid out of pocket for these services.

Things you need to know:


  • 2017-2018:                     claims will be paid at 100%, no deductible, no coinsurance
  • 2019-going forward:     claims will be paid at 100% only if billed with an office co-pay, If claim is not billed with office visit, coinsurance will apply

Reimbursement for out of pocket costs will be made to the member as follows:

  • 2017 claims- checks will be issued in 2018
  • 2018 claims- checks will be issued in 2019

Thank you to our retirees who brought this to the attention of the Union.
