UnitedHealthcare has introduced a new online portal allowing out-of-network providers to electronically register their taxpayer ID numbers and practice demographics.

- Medical license restrictions (if any)
- Valid National Provider Identifier (NPI) number
- Primary servicing address
- Proof of servicing address

The digital TIN registration takes about 10 minutes to complete and is available to both providers and third-party billing companies.
