Starting in late June, UnitedHealthcare’s Financial Information Privacy Notice (FIPN) was sent to fully insured dental and/or vision plan subscribers.
The notice describes how medical, dental and financial information about members may be used and disclosed, and how members can exercise their privacy rights, if they wish. The privacy notices are required to be sent out once a year under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).
This mailing excludes subscribers who are also covered under a fully insured, UnitedHealthcare medical policy, as a similar notice was sent to that membership in late 2017.
The FIPN mailer applies to both dental and vision plan members and a sample of the 2018 FIPN mailer is provided below. Full versions of the Notices of Privacy Practices are posted on myuhc.com® and myuhcvision.com.
If you have questions, please contact your UnitedHealthcare representative.
