In the menu, select Documents & Reporting > Document Library. Then, select the appropriate folder.
Notifications: When new letters are available in Document Library, an email notification will be sent to the address on file, which is typically the Primary Access Administrator. However, now they can also give others the ability to edit email notification preferences in the Document Delivery Settings section of the portal.
Check for updates: If you don’t already, we also recommend checking Document Library regularly for new letters documents and actions needed
Need to notify multiple staff members? Document Library notifications are limited to 1 email address per letter type. If multiple staff members require notification, the Primary Access Administrator can consider using a group email address.
API is a fully electronic digital solution that allows you to automate administrative transactions. This is a great alternative to Document Library for organizations with medium-to-high claim volume that have the technical resources to program API or the ability to outsource implementation.

* The following overpayment letters are included:
Overpayment identified – Notifying you that UnitedHealthcare paid too much on a processed claim
Overpayment reconsideration requests – Acknowledging UnitedHealthcare received your request to review our overpayment determination
Overpayment reconsideration decision – Providing the outcome of the reconsideration review and outlining what happens next
This change also includes letters sent by Optum for payment accuracy reviews they perform on behalf of UnitedHealthcare. It does not include overpayment letters sent by any other vendor. Those letters will continue to be mailed. Most will include both the vendor and UnitedHealthcare logos, and explain their review was done on our behalf.
