Identify and report increasing COVID-19 vaccine-related fraud and scams

Since the launch of the approved COVID-19 vaccines, related fraud and scams have been on the rise. Brokers, consultants and customers are encouraged to report suspected fraud to UnitedHealthcare using the Health Care Fraud and Abuse page on uhc.com.

If someone calls, texts or emails a member, promising access to the COVID-19 vaccine for a fee, the member should not share any personal or financial information. 

  • No one should ask a member to pay to put their name on a list for a vaccine. 
  • No one should ask a member to pay for early access to a vaccine.

Reporting suspected fraud
Anyone can report suspected fraud to UnitedHealthcare through the Health Care Fraud and Abuse page – UnitedHealthcare will help file a report, if needed. Taking the time to fill out a report may help members and others protect themselves and their financial information.
