Apply for Medicare plans through UnitedHealthcare by completing the process online, on the phone or through mail. The online enrolment process requires you to fill in your ZIP code and then click “Find Plans”. The page reloads with an error stating UHS does not provide Medicare services to the location of the ZIP code provided or redirects to an application form if UHC provides these services to the applicant’s area, says UHC.
For phone enrolment, call UHC’s toll-free telephone number between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. local time to speak to a sales representative. The representatives are available throughout the week, including weekends. If you wish to enroll via mail, download, fill and print the completion forms, and then mail them to UHC, states UHC.
To enroll for Medicare plans through UHC, you must have a Medicare claim number, a hospital Part A effective date and a medical Part B effective date. UHC only enrolls U.S. citizens or individuals living in the U.S. legally for five years or more. You must be 65 or older or have a qualifying disability that prevents you from working for at least 12 consecutive months or with end-stage renal disease if you are younger, says UHC.
