You are eligible to participate in the following three UnitedHealthcare (UHC) medical plans:
- UHC Choice Plus Point of Service (POS) Plan
- UHC Choice Plus Value Point of Service (POS) Plan
- UHC High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with Health Savings Account (HSA)
The UHC plans provide for care received both in-network and out-of-network. If covered by the UHC Value or HDHP with HSA plans, you must obtain prior authorization, as described in Section 4 of the plan's Summary Plan Description, to receive full benefits before receiving certain covered health services from a non-network provider. In general, if you visit a Network provider, that provider is responsible for obtaining prior authorization before you receive certain covered health services. See Section 6, Additional Coverage Details in the plan's Summary Plan Description, for further information.
Tip: To access additional resources, view plan coverage, check the status of a claim, search for a provider, and print a temporary identification card, visit myuhc.com. (First time users will need the member ID number from their medical ID card to register for access.)
* Reasonable and Customary (R&C) out-of-network charges are the maximum charges that the plan will consider for a particular service in a particular area when you use an out-of-network provider. R&C limits are generally determined by geography, as charges can vary for the same service in different parts of the country. Your total out-of-pocket cost may include provider charges that are above the plan’s R&C allowance.
** Eligible expenses are determined based on 190% of the published rates allowed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for Medicare for the same or similar service within the geographic market. Your total out-of-pocket cost may include provider charges that are above the plan’s allowance.
*** One or more family members combined must meet the entire deductible that applies for family coverage before the Plan begins paying non-preventive care beneﬁts, including prescription drug beneﬁts.
**** Until the combined medical and prescription drug deductible is met, you will pay the full cost of your non-preventive medical expenses and non-preventive prescription drug expenses. Preventive drugs on the CVS/Caremark Preventive Drug Therapy List are not subject to the deductible. Coinsurance of 10% will apply. Back to top
