SERVICE: Changes to protect your privacy!

2013-Nov-03


We’ve made changes to your myuhc.com member website that help us further protect your privacy and security. They also make myuhc.com even more easy to use.

What to expect:

Login with higher security
We’ll ask you for new contact information. This improves site security if you forget your user ID or password or log in from a new computer that we don’t know. We have used the most current technology to make sure you are who you say you are.
Register quickly and easily with better privacy protection
We’ve made registration simpler and better, including new security questions to improve site privacy.
If you’ve already registered, you can visit the Account Settings section to change your security questions.
For more information, reference the flyer “New registration steps for myuhc.com.”

Come on, guys, this is dumb. For one thing, two factor authentication is nice, but a giant pain. Why don’t I get a choice what risks I choose to take. Rather, you should spend your resources making a a better website, so that when I changed employers I didn’t have to create another User id because your systems couldn’t handle it. Or, perhaps, you might allow me to pick the longer passwords that are easily facilitated by LASTPASS. Some folks are further along the curve than you are. Oh, btw, the CHOMEBOOK and CHROME browser I use don’t remember cookies between restarts. So your new method ALWAYS makes it a “new computer”. But I don’t have worry about malware. I’d be amused if anyone responds to this.

Don’t you just love when they send from “unattended email” or “outbound only”?

Just call, hang on line, and we’ll maybe get around to you with a slew of dumb questions. 

And, oh by the way, we’re so big, you can just go somewhere else. (Like I have any choice about who my employer does business with!)

This is why “health”, “health care”, “health care insurance”, or something else should have NEVER been connected to employment.

Imagine if I changed jobs and lost my car insurance. My home insurance. My life insurance.

Crony capitalism at it best!
