Welcome to one of the toughest and most fulfilling ways to help people, including yourself. We offer the latest tools, most intensive training program in the industry and nearly limitless opportunities for advancement. Join us and start doing your life's best work.
We often challenge people to join us in one of the toughest and most fulfilling ways to help people, but this new Benefits Advisor role is all that and more. We are looking for people that can bring their passion and empathy to support families of children with special needs.
We have created an elite team of Benefit Advisors to serve our United Healthcare Families of Children with Special Needs because we recognize that the health care system needs to be tailored to work for every individual and family to best serve their specific needs.
You’ll have the opportunity to deliver an extraordinary experience to families who need an ally; someone in their corner that is empowered to fast track resolving issues and serves as an ongoing resource to provide guidance and community resources during key transition times in each family’s journey. Some issues you will help families resolve include complex benefit, claims and billing issues, prior authorizations, appeals and more.
Through the contributions that you make, you will not only open doors for these families, but also for yourself in ways that simply do not exist in any other organization, anywhere.
There are several steps in our hiring process. Please make sure that you have filled out all required sections of your employment application. Once you submit your completed application, you will receive an e-mail with information regarding next steps including any pre-employment assessment(s) that are required. Both your application and any required assessment(s) need to be completed before we can consider you for employment so the sooner you complete these two steps, the sooner you will hear from us.
