Get the most value from your healthcare today by choosing a UnitedHealth Premium Care Physician

Why should you select a UnitedHealth Premium Care Physician?

Premium Care Physicians have been evaluated based on two metrics:

#1. Quality of Care

#2. Cost-Efficiency

If the UHC physician has met these national industry guidelines and local market benchmarks, then their designation will display 2 blue hearts on the UHC website.

Where can I find these two blue hearts?

Why should I be concerned?

We ALL know healthcare in the United States is incredibly expensive! We want to choose the doctors who are providing the “biggest bang for your buck” and are providing the absolute highest level of care available.

Let’s all do our part to make sure the specialists we are visiting have met these important standards

Did you know our plans cover Virtual Visits?

When you don’t feel well, or your child is sick, the last thing you want to do is leave the comfort of home to sit in a waiting room. Now, you don’t have to!

A virtual visit lets you see and talk to a doctor from your mobile device or computer without an appointment. Most visits take about 10-15 minutes and doctors can often write a prescription that you can pick up at your local pharmacy. And, it’s covered by your health plan!

How do you access virtual visits?
You can log into www.myuhc.om and choose from provider sites, where you can register for a virtual visit. You can also go directly to www.doctorondemand.com OR www.amwell.com
