Medical Plan for Medicare Retirees
Your medical plan is a Medicare Advantage Plan, offering you all the benefits of original Medicare, plus extra benefits, such as maximum out-of-pocket coverage, worldwide emergency coverage, and programs to help improve your health and well-being.
Here are some key facts about your medical coverage provided by UnitedHealthcare. Your benefit levels are the same for in-network and out-of-network providers.
This is the amount you pay before the Plan pays for covered services. It resets at the beginning of each year.
This is the most you could pay out of pocket each year for Medicare-covered services.
