The UHC Group Medicare Advantage PPO Plan (a.k.a. Medicare Part C plan) includes all of the benefits of original Medicare Parts A and B including Prescription Drug Coverage (Medicare Part D).

  • To participate in this Plan, you must be entitled to Medicare Part A and be enrolled in Part B. You must continue to pay your applicable Part B premium. Please note you can only be enrolled in one Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Part D stand-alone or a supplement plan with prescription drug coverage at a time. If you are currently enrolled in one of these plans, you may be dis-enrolled from that plan. If you enroll in one of these plans in the future, you may be dis-enrolled from this plan.
