2019 UnitedHealthcare MedicareComplete Choice (Regional PPO) R7444-008 By UnitedHealthcare

2019 Medicare Advantage UnitedHealthcare MedicareComplete Choice (Regional PPO)

UnitedHealthcare MedicareComplete Choice (Regional PPO) R7444-008 is a 2019 Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part-C plan by UnitedHealthcare available to residents in South Carolina Georgia. This plan includes additional Medicare prescription drug (Part-D) coverage. The UnitedHealthcare MedicareComplete Choice (Regional PPO) has a monthly premium of $38.00 and has an in-network Maximum Out-of-Pocket limit of $6,700 (MOOP). This means that if you get sick or need a high cost procedure the co-pays are capped once you pay $6,700 out of pocket. This can be a extremely nice safety net.

UnitedHealthcare MedicareComplete Choice (Regional PPO) is a Regional PPO. A preferred provider organization (PPO) is a Medicare plan that has created contracts with a network of "preferred" providers for you to choose from at reduced rates. You do not need to select a primary care physician and you do not need referrals to see other providers in the network. Offering you a little more flexibility overall. You can get medical attention from a provider outside of the network but you will have to pay the difference between the out-of-network bill and the PPOs discounted rate.

UnitedHealthcare works with Medicare to provide significant coverage beyond Part A and Part B benefits. If you decide to sign up for UnitedHealthcare MedicareComplete Choice (Regional PPO) you still retain Original Medicare. But you will get additional Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from UnitedHealthcare and not Original Medicare. With Medicare Advantage Plans you are always covered for urgently needed and emergency care. Plus you receive all of the benefits of Original Medicare from UnitedHealthcare except hospice care. Original Medicare still provides you with hospice care even if you sign up for a Medicare Advantage Plan.
