EZ Claim Pay available in additional states, starting April 1

Starting April 1, 2024, we’re expanding the availability of EZ Claim Pay, a service for some AARP® Medicare Supplement Plan G insured members. Through EZ Claim Pay, members choose to have UnitedHealthcare pay their Medicare Part B deductible responsibility when Medicare applies all or part of their deductible to eligible claims. 

EZ Claim Pay will be available starting April 1 to members in:

  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Iowa
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • Montana
  • New York
  • North Dakota
  • South Dakota
  • Utah
  • Wyoming

Note: These states join those previously announced, which include:

  • Alabama
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Georgia
  • Indiana
  • Illinois
  • Kansas
  • Maine
  • Missouri
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • South Carolina
  • Rhode Island

What this means for you

If a member is enrolled in the EZ Claim Pay service, you don’t need to bill them directly for their Medicare Part B deductible amount. When a member is using EZ Claim Pay, we’ll pay you the appropriate deductible responsibility amount for claims we receive.

  • We’ll send these payments by check, separately from any other claim reimbursement
    • Note: Since these payments are sent by check, please make sure we have your current pay to/mailing address on record
  • With the check, we’ll include the claim number and other claim-related information so you can correctly apply the EZ Claim Pay payments to the member responsibility
  • Members should tell you that they use the EZ Claim Pay service

There is no change to how you submit claims.

Verifying member eligibility

When you call us at the number on the member ID card, you can verify eligibility and coverage. To verify if the member is enrolled in the EZ Claim Pay service, call 877-223-1628. Currently, the EZ Claim Pay service isn’t shown on the health plan ID card or if you verify the member’s eligibility online.

What this means for the member

EZ Claim Pay makes it easier for members to budget for and pay for care. The service also helps members get their out-of-pocket cost amount to you quicker.


For questions specific to EZ Claim Pay, call 877-223-1628, Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. –11 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. ET.
