What you’re getting

Your UnitedHealthcare SignatureValue® Alliance HMO plan is a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan, meaning you may save money when you choose care from network providers, as long as the type of care is covered in your benefits.

  • Quality care from a doctor who knows you.

    The plan requires you (and each covered person) to choose a primary care provider (PCP)—who’ll play a key role in managing your care, and is your first stop for any health concern.
  • Preventive care, no additional cost.

    Along with annual wellness coverage, you’ll get a range of tools and resources to help keep you active and informed about your health.
  • Pharmacy benefits through OptumRx®.

    You can order up to a 3-month supply of the medications you take regularly and have them delivered right to your home.

Good to Know Because your PCP is the provider most familiar with your health needs, you’ll need a referral from them to see a specialist or get certain services.
