3 benefits of an Individual and Family Plan that may surprise you

If you’re just getting started with shopping for a plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace, it may feel overwhelming. But it’s important to know, health insurance plans are not just for emergencies. They are designed to keep you and your family healthy throughout the year — and our UnitedHealthcare Individual and Family plans are no different.

UnitedHealthcare Individual and Family plans, available on the marketplace as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), cover ten categories of essential health benefits including annual wellness and preventive services, chronic disease management, prescription drug coverage, and more.

Beyond these essential health benefits, you may also have access to additional features that help keep you healthy all year-round.

Benefits included in UnitedHealthcare Individual and Family plans

Gift cards for doctor visits

When you visit your primary care provider with a UnitedHealthcare plan, you may be eligible to receive a $25 gift card from a national retailer like Amazon or Walmart.

Discounted Walgreens-brand health and wellness products

For any Walgreens preferred network plans, Walgreens will offer a 20% discount for approved Walgreens-branded over-the-counter (OTC) products. This might include health and wellness items you use every day, like first aid supplies, pain relievers, allergy sprays and more.

Additional resources

Open enrollment for health coverage runs nationwide from Nov. 1 to Jan. 15, for most states. Enrollments completed between Dec. 16 and Jan. 15 will have coverage effective Feb. 1.
