United Healthcare to Replace Humana Effective January 1, 2017
In order to provide Broward County employees and their dependents with the best services and benefits, a determination to award the healthcare services contract to United Healthcare for 2017 has been reached. This decision was made after on-going issues with the network provider contracts through Humana.
United Healthcare Choice Plans will be the plans for the County effective January 1, 2017. All plan designs remain the same including premiums, deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums. The HDHP Base Plan, CDH High and Low Plans will be administered through the UHC Choice Plan. The HDHP OON Plan will be administered through the UHC Choice with In/Out-of-Network Plan.
All of these plans are on the UHC National Network and include hospital networks such as Baptist, Tenet, Holy Cross, HCA, Memorial, Broward Health and more. Most of the providers from the Humana networks are also in the United Healthcare network. However, it is important that you verify your provider accepts UHC prior to services being rendered. This is particularly important for anyone with services scheduled in January 2017. For any prescheduled procedures, tests or treatments in January, please complete a Continuity of Care form and send to UHC. Instructions and Form HERE

PLEASE NOTE – No action is required by any employee that wishes to remain in the plan type chosen during Open Enrollment.

When Will Insurance Cards Be Issued
New insurance cards will be issued to all enrolled employees with dependents listed on the card by early January 2017.

To assist you and your dependents to make the easiest transition to United Healthcare and continue with your healthcare needs, here is a checklist of items that should assist you:

- Download the Health4Me app. See Health4Me flyer.
- Provide your new insurance card BEFORE any services or procedures.
- For any prescheduled procedures, tests or treatments in January, please complete a Continuity of Care form and send to UHC. Instructions and Form.
