I find these things so you don’t have to!
Dateline: WINDHAM, Maine
Last week, UnitedHealthcare sent one woman over 500 letters in 5 days. Stephanie Lay says they were sent her 19 year old son but were actually were addressed to Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services — in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Most of the letters said the company was denying a payment of $54. The claims go back to 2016.
At first, Lay thought it was a joke and was especially amused by a line written at the bottom of every single one of the letters that says, “Go Paperless!”
A spokeswoman for UnitedHealthcare says they are looking into the issue.
AND if they spent 55-cents per letter that would total $275 dollars…in order to deny a payment of $54!
Keep that in mind when you choose your plans and pay your premiums this fall.
