Provider Network Information
What is a Preferred Provider?
A Preferred Provider is a doctor, hospital or other health care provider that participates in UnitedHealthcare Choice Plus Network.
The advantage to using a preferred provider is that these providers have agreed to accept a predetermined fee or Preferred Allowance as payment for their services. Out-of-Network providers have not agreed to any prearranged fee schedule, therefor any charges in excess of the insurance premium may be the student's responsibility. Consequently, when insured students use Preferred Providers, out-of-pocket expenses will be less because any applicable co-payment will be based on a Preferred Allowance.
The insured person should be aware that Preferred Provider hospitals may be staffed with Out-of-Network providers. Receiving services or care from an Out- of-Network Provider at a Preferred Provider hospital does not guarantee that all charges will be paid at the Preferred Provider level of benefits.
