UnitedHealthcare SignatureValue® Alliance HMO plan

Please note: This information is for active CalPERS members only. If you are a Medicare-eligible retiree, please see the UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) plan on this site for information on your Medicare Advantage plan options.

With this health plan, you'll need to select a primary care physician (PCP) from the SignatureValue Alliance HMO network. Your PCP will perform a key role in guiding your health care by helping you avoid duplicating tests and services, connecting you with a specialist if needed and supporting you in achieving your best health.

You won't have coverage if you use an out-of-network provider or if you see a specialist without a referral from your PCP.

Preventive care is covered 100% in the network. You don't have to pay any out-of-pocket costs for age-appropriate preventive care as long as you use a network doctor.

The UnitedHealth Premium® designation program is a resource for informational purposes only. Designations are displayed in UnitedHealthcare online physician directories at myuhc.com®. You should always visit myuhc.com for the most current information. Premium designations are a guide to choosing a physician and may be used as one of many factors you consider when choosing a physician. If you already have a physician, you may also wish to confer with him or her for advice on selecting other physicians. You should also discuss designations with a physician before choosing him or her. Physician evaluations have a risk of error and should not be the sole basis for selecting a physician. Please visit myuhc.com for detailed program information and methodologies.
