United Healthcare (UHC) Denials

Recently there have been many problems with the United Healthcare Health Select/state employee plans.  This plan reimburses for diagnostic testing under the preventative care benefit. 

UHC stated that they have re-evaluated the terms of their policy concerning diagnostic testing under preventative care and decided that they will not be paying these codes in the future.

In separate conversations, the UHC area representative and the appeals department management have both confirmed that the diagnostic testing under the preventative service is covered.  This issue is being addressed by UHC management and will be corrected soon.

Doctors will be notified as soon as a resolution is in place.
