How do I find a provider?

UnitedHealthcare® Group Medicare Advantage Retiree Plans are Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans. As a member of a PPO plan, you have lots of flexibility in choosing a provider.  You can choose from a national network of contracted doctors and hospitals or you can use any doctor or hospital outside the network as long as they participate in Medicare and accept the plan.  And remember, in-network or out-of-network, you pay the same!
