United, Optum Simplify Funding Assistance Post Cyberattack

United Healthcare and Optum continue to offer interest-free financial assistance to physicians suffering cash flow problems related to the Change Healthcare cyberattack. 

TMA has learned that, based on feedback, Optum has simplified the funding terms and made it easier to request larger amounts of money. Practices must show proof of cash flow before the attack and proof of current cash flow, and Optum will make up the difference. Funds are distributed on a weekly basis, so physicians may apply weekly as needed. Use the Temporary Funding Inquiry Form and contact Optum with questions at (877) 702-3253.
