Transition of Care

If you are new to UnitedHealthcare and are currently receiving treatment for a specific medical condition by an out-of-network provider, we don’t want to disrupt that care. That’s why we offer Transition of Care, which lets you continue to receive care - for a limited time - as we help you make the change to a network provider.

To see if you qualify and to obtain a Transition of Care form, speak with your benefit manager. Be sure to advise them of your state of residence so that you are given the proper form.
