Arizona State Retirement System Medicare Plans

United Healthcare

Created exclusively for ASRS plan participants

Depending on your Medicare eligibility and where you live, you have two Medicare Advantage plan options:

UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage HMO plan—Arizona only

With this plan, you and anyone else covered must each choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from the HMO network, and choose from the same network1 for all physicians, specialists or facilities used.

  • Your PCP must be your first stop for care—if needed, they can refer you to a specialist in the HMO network.
  • There is generally a copay when seeing your PCP or another network provider; if you get care out-of-network, however, you’ll have to pay the full cost.
  • Remember, even with a referral from your PCP, you should always check that the doctor you see is in network.

UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage PPO plan—nationwide

Under the PPO, plan, you’ll have access to our nationwide coverage.

  • See any doctor—in- or out-of-network—for the same cost share, as long as they accept the plan and Medicare.
  • No referrals are needed to see a specialist.
  • When looking for a new doctor, we recommend seeing one in our network—we work closely with our network physicians, giving them the resources and tools to help you make better health care decisions.
Your Rx is covered, too
Both of our Medicare Advantage plans include a Medicare Part D drug benefit—so you’ll automatically get prescription drug coverage when you enroll in either plan.
