United Healthcare Insurance - Not Honoring Benefits; Rejecting Claims
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Per the new regulations, some insurance companies claim to cover a portion of breast pump purchase or rental provided that you rent or purchase from a hospital or medical device supplier. I did just that. I rented a breast pump from the hospital and filed the claim with UHC only for them to state that my policy does include the benefit but since I rented a hospital grade breast pump that it will not reimburse the $200 I'm entitled to per my policy. When renting from the hospital the only option I was aware of was the hospital grade breast pump. UHC spent 3 months giving me the run around regarding the benefits disbursements. They agreed that I was entitled but finally decided that since I rented the "hospital grade" from the hospital that I could not receive the reimbursement. Please beware of UHC and try to avoid using them for health insurance.
