UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage plans provide all the same coverage as Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) combined into a single plan.

Most UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans include extra benefits for things that Original Medicare doesn’t cover. These additional benefits can include things like:

  • Prescription drug coverage
  • Routine dental care
  • Eye exams and coverage for eyeglasses or other corrective lenses
  • Hearing tests, hearing aids and other hearing care services
  • Membership to wellness programs such as SilverSneakers®

Medicare Advantage plans also feature annual out-of-pocket spending limits, which can help protect you from thousands of dollars in Medicare costs. Original Medicare doesn’t include an out-of-pocket max.

UnitedHealthcare offers several types of Medicare Advantage plans. These plan options include, but aren’t limited to:

  • AARP MedicareComplete (HMO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Access (HMO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Choice (PPO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Focus (HMO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Focus (PPO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete SecureHorizons (HMO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Value (HMO)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Plus Plan 1 (HMO-POS)
  • AARP MedicareComplete Plus Plan 2 (HMO-POS)

UnitedHealthcare also offers several types of Medicare Special Needs Plans (SNPs), which are designed to serve people who have specific health care or budget needs.

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans come with affordable – and sometimes $0 – premiums. Not all plans are available in all areas, and you may have more plans available to you.

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Part D Plans

Original Medicare does not typically provide coverage for prescription drugs.

If you want Medicare coverage for prescription drugs, you can consider enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan that offers prescription drug coverage, or you can enroll in a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plan (PDP).

Each UnitedHealthcare PDP has a drug formulary, which details the commonly used generic and brand name prescription drugs that are covered by the plan and the cost tiers that those drugs are on. Generally, lower-cost drugs are on a lower tier, and higher-cost drugs are on a higher tier.

UnitedHealthcare offers several different Medicare Part D plans:

  • 2019 AARP MedicareRx Walgreens (PDP)
  • 2019 AARP MedicareRx Preferred (PDP)
  • 2019 AARP MedicareRx Saver Plus (PDP)

The AARP MedicareRx Walgreens plan features low premiums and the flexibility to fill your prescriptions at one of more than 8,000 Walgreens locations nationwide.

The AARP MedicareRx Preferred plan offers the most extensive UnitedHealthcare drug coverage, including most generic and commonly prescribed name-brand drugs. The plan also features a $0 annual deductible and a broad nationwide pharmacy network.2

The AARP MedicareRx Saver Plus plan could be a good fit for you if you don’t take many prescription drugs and want a plan with low copays.

You  may be able to mail-order certain prescriptions for delivery to your home with AARP Medicare Part D plans from UnitedHealthcare that include the OptumRx® benefit.3

With OptumRx, there is no charge for standard delivery of your prescriptions to any address in the U.S. and U.S. territories. New prescriptions typically arrive within ten business days, and refills usually arrive in around seven business days.

Not all of these plans are offered in all areas. You can learn more about UnitedHealthcare Medicare prescription drug coverage in your area by calling TTY Users: 711 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
