Bind administers an innovative personalized health plan backed by UnitedHealthcare. It features no deductible and no coinsurance, broad network choices, upfront pricing and flexible coverage that can be activated during the year for less common, plannable treatments.

We’re here to help health care professionals understand what is unique about the plan and how they can prepare for Bind members and claims. You will find resources and support services below to help reduce administrative burdens and avoid confusion on everything from eligibility and claims processing to payment.

Here’s what the Bind member ID card looks like:

Get set up to accept Bind

1.       Load the Bind Payer ID:

Add the Bind Payer ID number — 25463 — into your systems to help avoid delays in claims handling and processing. While Bind leverages the UnitedHealthcare network, Bind members must present a Bind member ID card such as the one above.

2.       Check eligibility; determine benefits and coverage:

Ensure the patient is an enrolled member with Bind for the date of service. To check eligibility and benefits, visit the UnitedHealthcare Shared Services (UHSS) Provider Portal or call the UnitedHealthcare Shared Services (UHSS) Provider Service team at 844-368-6661. For dependents, you’ll need the subscriber ID. (Note: The UHSS Provider Portal is separate from the UnitedHealthcare Provider Portal.)

3.       Check prior authorization and notification requirements:

Prior authorization and notification requirements are based on the network the member is accessing. Flexible coverage does not require prior authorization.

4.       Submit claims:

Claims must be sent directly to the Bind Payer ID — 25463. Always include the subscriber ID and rendering address on the claim. This is used to confirm the copay/member price. If not included, the copay/member price may be incorrect from what was originally quoted. Important: Bind claims must not be submitted to UnitedHealthcare. If they are, they will be denied.
