Update: COVID-19 vaccines are authorized by the FDA. FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines are covered at $0 cost-share to you through Dec. 31, 2021. You MUST show your Medicare number which is on your red, white and blue Medicare card. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state health departments are advising who can get the vaccines and when. Find resources about vaccine availability for your area

Watch this short video to learn more about what to expect when you get the COVID vaccine, why it’s important, and to hear the experiences of those getting and giving the vaccine.

We’re here to provide support and resources:

  • COVID-19 testing and testing-related services are $0 cost-share through the national public health emergency period.
  • COVID-19 treatment cost-sharing will be according to your benefit plan. UnitedHealthcare temporarily waived cost-share on COVID-19 treatment through March 31, 2021. 

And you have expanded access to telehealth through the national public health emergency period, currently scheduled to end July 19, 2021. For additional details, sign in to your online account.
