With this plan, you can use any doctor, clinic, hospital or health care facility you want in our national network.
There’s coverage if you need to go out of the network. However, seeing an out- of-network provider will likely cost you more. If you need to see a specialist, a referral is not required.
Preventive care is covered 100 percent 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.
Finding out if your prescriptions are covered is easy when you use Prescription Search.
Primary care provider not required-but choosing one is highly recommended.
Network coverage plays a big part in delivering you cost savings and quality care. With the network, you'll have access to a group of health care providers and facilities that have a contract with UnitedHealthcare. Finding providers in the network is easy when you use
Stay in the network - To help save on costs, choose care and services from within our network.
While this plan does not require you to have a primary care physician (PCP), choosing one for yourself and each member is highly recommended. Your PCP is your health guide - coordinating your care, helping you avoid cost surprises and supporting you in achieving your best health.
It's easy to find and choose a network PCP - just go to Provider Search to get started.
Most health plans share the same idea: there's how much you pay for the cost of care, when you pay for it, and what percentage of those costs you and your plan share. It can all be a little confusing, especially when you add in words like "deductible" and "copay".
To make it easier, here's an example of how health plans work.
You're responsible for paying 100% of the costs for covered health care, up until you reach your deductible. The deductible is the amount you pay before the plan starts sharing costs. Age appropriate preventive care is covered 100% as long as you use a network provider.
Some health plans have a copay, which is a fixed amount you pay each time you see a provider or purchase a prescription. Because copays don't count toward your deductible, you're responsible for paying 100% of your copay up until you reach your out-of-pocket limit.
Coinsurance kicks in and your health plan starts sharing a percentage of these costs with you, up until you reach your out-of-pocket limit.
The most you'll have to pay for the costs of health care in a plan year is your out-of-pocket limit. Once this limit is reached, your health plan covers you at 100% for the rest of the plan year.
