Link Security

Easily Manage Access to UnitedHealthcare’s Online Tools

Starting Oct. 8, 2021, Link Security will move to the UnitedHealthcare Provider Portal and can be found in the upper menu under Practice Management > Access Management. You’ll still be able to manage access, add, change or deactivate users in the portal. We’ll announce more changes soon. Find out more.

Link Security allows Password Owners and ID Administrators to add, change or deactivate users’ access to the UnitedHealthcare Provider Portal. Each practice or organization has one designated Password Owner, but can have multiple ID Administrators and Standard Users.

Benefits and Features

ID administrators can:

  • Approve or deactivate access for other administrators and standard users
  • Assign roles to administrators and standard users to determine which tools the user can access
  • Assign profiles to administrators and standard users to determine which TINs, specialties and physicians/facilities the user can access

Password owners can do everything an ID administrator can do plus:

  • Grant multi-TIN access, which allows users to have a single One Healthcare ID (formerly Optum ID) for all the TINs they need to access
  • Download a report of users and their access

We provide a full range of resources including instructor-led training sessions.
