Each quarter UHC adds credits to your OTC account. You can then use the credits to purchase covered OTC items. Please remember; the credits either expire at the end of every quarter or annually, depending on the plan.
To find out if your Medicare advantage plan offers an OTC benefit; either check your plans summary of benefits or call the customer service number on the back of your card to speak with a customer service representative.
