Our members receive health care ID cards that include information necessary for you to submit claims, such as the payer ID for electronic claims submission. Information on the cards may vary by health benefit plan.
Please check the member’s health care ID card at each visit. You may keep a copy of both sides of the health care ID card for your records. Possession of a health care ID card is not proof of eligibility.
You can view current ID cards for most members when you verify eligibility using UHCprovider.com/Link.
We use bar codes on most health care ID cards to make it easy for you to access member information.
A 2D bar code scanner is required to scan these cards. The scanner can be used together with UHCprovider.com to access the Member’s Personal Health Record, verify eligibility, submit a claim and perform other administrative transactions. We use the national Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) card standards for our ID cards.
