UnitedHealthcare Plans

We know that you have options when it comes to choosing your health care coverage, and it's an important decision for you and your family. Your health plan is about more than just benefit coverage; it's about knowing the plan you choose is designed to offer value for the money you spend. It's also about having confidence in your health plan to know that you and your family will receive the care you need when and where you need it.

Making your health plan decision

For most people, there are five important things they consider when making their health plan selection:

  • Access to quality doctors and hospitals
  • Benefit options that meet your personal health care needs
  • Innovative and easy-to-use mobile apps and online resources
  • 24/7 Personal health support from nurses and health coaches
  • Affordable health care coverage

UnitedHealthcare (UHC) delivers all five...

UnitedHealthcare Offers Two Separate Plan Options

SignatureValue HMO Plan- is a plan that provides you with access to the quality care you deserve through a select network of contracted, local providers, and the protection you expect from major health care costs using your Primary Care Physician with fixed co-payments.

With the SignatureValue HMO Plan you choose your personal Primary Care Provider (PCP) from UHC's contracted HMO network. This distinct provider network includes doctors and hospitals contracted through leading, local California medical groups, chosen for their track record of quality performance. Your Primary Care Physician will get to know you and your unique health care needs to help you manage your health.

Select Plus PPO Plan - is a plan that provides you with freedom and access to the quality care you deserve using UHC's National Network of contracted providers, with health care cost savings based on their contracts with those providers.

The Select PPO Plan allows you the freedom to direct your own care and choose your physicians from UHC's National provider network. This network includes over 750,000 doctors and 6,600 hospitals allowing you to select doctors who meet your personal health needs.
