UHC is requiring all Providers elect their electronic payment method in 2015

UnitedHealthcare-contracted providers, who have not yet enrolled in EPS, must elect their preferred electronic claim
payment method in 2015. Contracted providers can opt to receive payments directly to their bank account or through
Virtual Card Payments. Virtual Card Payments are a secure electronic payment method that does not require your
bank account information. Providers will receive reminders regarding final payment method election deadline dates 90 days prior to those deadline dates.

If your organization does not elect either direct deposit (ACH) or Virtual Card Payments by your payment election deadline, your election will default to Virtual Card Payments and your organization will begin receiving Virtual Card Payments

Please note, your current credit card processing fees will apply if you choose Virtual Card Payment option.

See the January 2015 bulletin for complete information.  https://www.unitedhealthcareonline.com or if you have additional questions about EPS, direct deposit, Virtual Card Payments or enrollment, call UHC at 866-842-3278 and select option 5, to speak with an EPS representative.
