United Healthcare Complaint - United Healthcare is a NIGHTMARE to be insured with
If you are considering insurances, DO NOT consider this one, you will pay the price. After visiting the doctor last month, I come to find out after receiving both a doctor bill and medical lab bills that I wasn't insured. I just about paniked, and I called them to have them tell me that even though I had paid my bill, had documents stating I was insured, I somehow happened not to be. After over 4 hours on the phone, (they don't have a universal computer system) and accepting I will have to pay my bills with no explanation, I received a letter from United Healthcare stating I had been insured that entire month. Now, I called back and they are claiming, oh yes, it was our fault, in fact you are insured. So, after being transferred many more times, I got someone who claims that they will contact all of the labs and Dr. offices and send a check to cover what they should with an explanation.
Now, this isn't the first time I have had a horrible experience. I am honestly expecting them to screw this up to, so I called the billing departments and updated them myself.
They seem to mysteriously uninsure people. My sister who had been insured through them gave birth, and found out a month later that they had decided to cancel her insurance claiming her labor and delivery weren't going to be covered by them. In the end- THREE YEARS later she won and was awarded that coverage, although she is still waiting for the $.
So, save yourself time, give yourself peace of mind and don't even consider United Healthcare for your insurance, you will be sorry.
