What you’re getting

Your UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage plan is a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan. So you may see added benefits and features not included in other plans.

  • One plan, full Original Medicare coverage

    With our PPO Plan, you’ll still be in the Medicare program, but you will receive your benefits through the UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage plan*, giving you all the services covered by Original Medicare — and more.
  • One card, no confusion

    No need to carry separate Medicare and UnitedHealthcare cards. When you visit your provider, just bring your UnitedHealthcare member ID card, which has all the information the provider needs to file your claim.
  • Same cost, in or out of network

    Your share of the cost — copay or coinsurance — is the same for any provider or health care professional, as long as they agree to see you and accept the plan.
  • One plan at a time

    Usually, you may be enrolled in only one Medicare Advantage plan or one Medicare Part D prescription drug plan at a time. If you enroll in another Medicare Advantage plan or a stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan after your enrollment in this group-sponsored plan, you may be disenrolled from the other plans.
