September 2013 Insurance Update
To: Members of the High Desert and Inland Employee‐Employer Trust Select Plus Plan
Subject: Your 2013 United Healthcare Select Plus Plan
On behalf of United Healthcare, we are writing to apologize for the inconvenience and confusion your new Select Plus Plan name, network and coverage may have created for you and your doctors, and want you to know we have been working diligently to resolve the issues.The following information will address questions we have received, and provide some clarity for you regarding the
Select Plus Plan.
1) What’s the Difference between the Select Plus Network Providers vs. Choice Plus Network Providers?
There is NO difference in the network of providers or how you access them. Both networks include the same providers. The only difference is in the contract between United Healthcare and the providers.During open enrollment, you may have seen FAQ’s that mistakenly referenced the Choice Plus Provider Network rather than the Select Plus Provider Network.
2) Do I need to select a Primary Care Physician (PCP) if I enrolled in the Select Plus Plan?
No. You do not have to select a PCP in the Select Plus Plan.
3) How do Chiropractic Benefits work in the Select Plus Plan?
Effective 10/1/2013, chiropractic copayments will change to $5.00 for In‐Network Rehabilitation Services (including Chiropractic/Manipulative treatment visits). Services will be covered at 100% after you pay a $5.00 copayment per visit.
Maintenance visits for chiropractic care are now covered, with a maximum limit of 2 visits per month.Make sure to ask your doctor to submit a provider form for each maintenance visit. For treatment that requires more than 2 visits per month, you are encouraged to consult with your physician regarding the medical necessity of this care.
4) How do I receive lab services in the Select Plus Plan?
Using participating lab providers in the Select Plus Plan network will help provide you with the lowest outof‐pocket costs. Please note:
Quest Diagnostic is NOT a participating network provider.
LabCorp is a participating network provider.
Talk with your doctor about using a network provider for diagnostic lab tests. You may also visit
www.myuhc.com, and click on “Find a Physician, Laboratory or Facility” to locate the nearest LabCorp in your area. Using participating providers in the Select Plus Plan network, including lab, x‐ray and other diagnostic services willprovide you with the lowest out‐of‐pocket costs. You can find network providers by visiting www.myuhc.com
