ARTICLE Help Your Employees Find Quality, Cost-Efficient Health Care

An open wallet displaying pictures of physicians. Our innovative EDGESM plan offers savings, while providing your employees access to quality, cost-efficient health care.

Consumer-driven health plans shift more financial responsibility to employees. But involving consumers in the decision-making process requires that they have access to tools and information to help them compare their options and make more informed choices about their health care.

Fortunately, we can help them make more informed choices – and help you lower your monthly premiums up to 25 percent.

The UnitedHealth Premium® program evaluates physicians using national guidelines for quality and local market benchmarks for cost efficiency.  The Premium designation can help your employees choose the care that’s right for them.

EDGE plan participants pay lower co-payments and co-insurance for services provided by UnitedHealth Premium Tier 1 physicians. These physicians are identified on and in provider directories.

Pay for what you need

EDGE lets you adjust plan features to suit your company's needs, such as:

  • Benefit coverage levels
  • Out-of-pocket maximums
  • Deductibles
  • Co-insurance
  • Mandated benefit levels for mental health, substance abuse, and chiropractic care
