Medicare Plan Options

Medicare Part A and Part B (also called Original Medicare) are provided by the federal government. Some private insurance companies – like UnitedHealthcare – offer additional Medicare coverage options that can offer beneficiaries a range of benefits that may not be covered by original Medicare.

With each of these types of Medicare coverage, plan availability and costs may vary based on where you live. Speak with a licensed insurance agent who can help you compare plans that are available in your area.

In 2018, 25 percent of all Medicare Advantage plan beneficiaries in the U.S. were enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan from UnitedHealthcare.2

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans combine the benefits offered by Original Medicare into one plan.

Many Medicare Advantage plans also offer additional benefits that may include coverage for prescription drugs, vision and dental care not covered by Original Medicare.

If you enroll in a UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan, you can receive a wide range of preventive services for a $0 copay when you visit your primary care provider.

Some of these covered preventive services include:

  • Alcohol misuse screening and counseling
  • Bone mass measurement (for those at high risk)
  • Mammograms
  • Cardiovascular screening
  • Hepatitis B immunization and Hepatitis C screening
  • Colorectal cancer screening
  • Diabetes screening
  • Pneumococcal shot
  • Prostate-specific antigen (POSA) test
  • Counseling to stop smoking
  • Flu shots

These are just a few of the preventive services covered by your UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan. Plan programs and service availability can vary by plan and service area.

All UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans feature an annual maximum on your out-of-pocket costs for covered medical care and services.

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D)

UnitedHealthcare offers several different Medicare Part D plan options, which include, but are not limited to:

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

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Part D plans provide coverage for some of your prescription medication costs. Enrolling in a Part D plan can help you save money on your out-of-pocket costs for filling prescriptions.

Every Medicare Part D plan offers slightly different coverage, including the list of drugs covered by the plan (also called a plan formulary) and their associated costs.

You could potentially save even more money with a UnitedHealthcare Medicare Part D plan if you use OptumRx® for home delivery of your prescriptions.3

With OptumRx®, you have access to pharmacists who are available by phone to answer your questions at any time, day or night. There is also no charge for standard delivery of prescriptions to any address in the U.S., including U.S. territories.

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)

Medicare Supplement Insurance plans provide coverage for some of the out-of-pocket expenses associated with Original Medicare, such as Medicare deductibles, coinsurance, copayments and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Medicare Supplement Insurance plans are accepted by any doctor in the United States that accepts Medicare patients.

UnitedHealthcare Special Needs Plans (SNP)

A type of Medicare Advantage plan, Special Needs Plans are designed to help meet the specific needs of people who have a particular health condition or unique financial needs. An SNP can help provide a way to get customized care for maximum savings.

UnitedHealthcare offers four different types of Medicare SNP plans:

  • Dual Eligible Plans
  • Institutional Plans
  • Institutional-Equivalent Plans
  • Chronic Condition Plans
