UnitedHealth PremiumŪ Designation
Recognizing physicians for meeting guidelines for quality and cost efficiency.
The UnitedHealth Premium® designation program recognizes physicians and specialty centers that meet or exceed quality of care and cost efficiency standards.
The program evaluates hospitals and doctors in 21 specialties, including:
- Primary care
- Internal medicine
- Orthopaedic surgery
Evaluations are based on industry standards, evidence-based and medical society standards and guidelines from medical organizations and governmental agencies such as the Ambulatory Care Quality Alliance, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and the American College of Cardiology, plus scientific advisory boards.
Physicians who earn the designation:
- Are identified in our physician directory. This way, members can consider a doctor’s designation and make the choice that is right for them.
- Are considered for UnitedHealth Practice RewardsSM. This program financially rewards UnitedHealth Premium designated physicians who meet additional criteria.
