UnitedHealthcare Benefit Ecosystem

Streamlining the benefits administration experience

It’s time to move away from manually intensive, time consuming, error-prone experiences that often come up with benefits administration. In the UnitedHealthcare Benefit Ecosystem™, benefits administrators can look forward to real-time integration, streamlined enrollment, and automated profit processing for eligibility and renewal.

Integrated. Automated. Accessible. Here’s how it works.

The way in to the benefits administration platform is through the UnitedHealthcare Application Programming interface (API) Marketplace. Think of this as the door where external stakeholders can securely access and use available APIs.

This is where easier benefits administration begins

  • Automated tasks help eliminate hours of work
  • Information may be shared in real time, when the customer needs it
  • Available API integration continues to grow based on the needs of the benefits administration firm
