UnitedHealthcare Choice HMO coming soon to new large groups in New Mexico
Beginning July 1, New Mexico large businesses will be able to enjoy the added flexibility and accessibility of Choice HMO plans.
Effective July 1, 2022, in addition to Choice Plus PPO plans, New Mexico will begin offering Choice HMO plans to groups with 51 or more eligible employees. Choice HMO plans are currently available to groups with up to 50 employees. Like the PPO plans, Choice HMO plans allow members to choose any provider within the network, including specialists, without a referral or selecting a primary care provider (PCP).
Employees and their families can access care from any of over 1.2 million network providers.1 Unlike the Choice Plus plans, Choice HMO designs do not include out-of-network benefits, unless in an emergency. Because Choice HMO members must utilize a provider within the defined network it offers lower premiums than Choice Plus plans. Choice HMO offers plans with first dollar benefits such as copays for PCP and Specialist office visits. High deductible health plan options are also available which can be paired with a tax advantaged health savings account.
