What happens after your plan sponsor submits your enrollment to us?

Your plan sponsor will send your enrollment information to us. After we receive it, here's what you can expect:

  1. We'll review your information and eligibility.
  2. After you're verified, your application will be sent to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for approval. Approval may take up to one week.
  3. Once CMS approves your enrollment, you'll be sent a confirmation letter and your plan member ID card.
  4. Soon after, you'll receive your UnitedHealthcare Member Kit in the mail. It includes details about your specific health plan benefits.
  5. Next fall, watch for your Annual Notice of Changes, which is mailed to you every year you're a plan member. The document describes your benefits, and any changes to them, from the current plan year to the next plan year.
