UnitedHealthcare Announces 2013 Medicare Plans

People enrolled in most UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans that include drug coverage can save money on their prescriptions in 2013 through the Pharmacy Saver program, which reduces the out-of-pocket cost on hundreds of generic drugs when purchased at pharmacies participating in the program.

All of the retailers included in UnitedHealthcare’s preferred pharmacy network will also participate in Pharmacy Saver in 2013, more than doubling the number of locations where Medicare Advantage-Part D members can take advantage of the cost-savings available through Pharmacy Saver. Since launching in January 2011, Pharmacy Saver has saved UnitedHealthcare plan participants more than $35 million. ii

UnitedHealthcare will offer beneficiaries more choice and greater access to health care services in 2013. Medicare beneficiaries with special needs, such as those with chronic illnesses, will find new options through the Care Improvement Plus plans now included in UnitedHealthcare’s plan offerings. Care Improvement Plus provides comprehensive and specialized support for beneficiaries living with diabetes, heart failure or chronic lung disorders.

The addition of Preferred Care Partners and Medica HealthCare Plans to UnitedHealthcare’s portfolio demonstrates the company’s commitment to strengthening its services in South and Central Florida and to helping Floridians live healthier lives. Preferred Care and Medica have a strong record of providing quality, affordable health care coverage to Floridians.

In 2013, 1.9 million Floridians will have access to a Preferred Care Medicare Advantage plan, and 650,000 will have access to a Medica Medicare Advantage plan. All will have access to one of the company’s zero-premium plans. Both Preferred Care and Medica offer plans that include a Medicare Part B premium rebate ranging from $40 to $99.90, and their plans often include coverage of tier 1 drugs, visits with primary care physicians and specialists, and inpatient hospital stays at no cost.

For beneficiaries seeking ways to supplement and fill in the financial gaps of their Original Medicare coverage, UnitedHealthcare will continue to offer a range of AARP Medicare Supplement plans in 2013. The plans will remain competitively priced nationwide. With more than 3 million plan participants, UnitedHealthcare is the nation’s largest provider of Medicare supplement health insurance.
