United American Insurance Company and the Internet
United American is very Internet-focused in terms of the administration of its policies and services. It has links on its company website to different Web-based portals for policyholders and providers. Policyholders can access the UA eServiceCenter any time of the day or night, and get policy and claim information.
Member providers, such as hospitals and doctors, can access the MedicalUA site to get most of their questions answered. This includes checking if a claim has not just been paid, but whether the payment check has cleared the bank. They can also verify a patient’s insurance coverage before treatment.
While most companies consider these eservices merely electronic services, United American Insurance Company views them as “essential services” that enable it to help its customers more easily and quickly.
United American Insurance Company Health Insurance
United American Insurance Company’s health insurance plans can work as basic coverage or supplemental coverage. Its Foundation Signature Series plan is for customers from infant to age 63, and helps manage deductibles, coinsurance, and co-pays. It helps pay inpatient hospital bills, with a total maximum benefit for any given year not to exceed $10,000. Policyholders can choose to purchase an optional hospital outpatient rider to the plan.
The company’s Tradition Signature series plan is only available to California residents between the ages of 0 and 63. It features a hospital inpatient benefit that will reimburse up to $50,000 of the bill. It includes mammography coverage and comes with optional riders for:
- Critical illness
- Outpatient doctor coverage
The HealthGuard Critical Illness policy pays a pre-determined lump sum of $10,000 to $50,000 upon diagnosis of the policyholder’s illness.
