Providing Illinois members a simpler, more streamlined health care experience

UnitedHealthcare Charter® in Illinois offers a cost-conscious, straightforward health plan designed to offer employees and covered family members access to the care they may need.* With Charter, members choose a primary care physician (PCP) to coordinate care and provide specialist referrals with the ultimate goal of improving health outcomes and lowering the total cost of care. With this added simplicity and efficiency, employers may save up to 25%.

How it works

  • Lower out-of-pocket costs
  • Online tools to help members use their benefits
  • Same/next day appointments and 24-hour doctor visits
