IMPORTANT HEALTH INSURANCE UPDATE
 

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

​HUMANA PLAN NAME UHC PLAN NAME​
​​HDHP Base Plan HMO -​ ​HDHP Choice Base Plan
​HDHP Out of Network Plan NPOS ​- ​HDHP Choice with In/Out of Network Plan
​CDH Low Plan HMO ​- ​CDH Choice Low Plan

PLEASE NOTE – No action is required by any employee that wishes to remain in the plan type chosen during Open Enrollment. You will be automatically enrolled in the plan you chose during Open Enrollment. Only those wishing to change plans will need to complete the form and/or contact Employee Benefits. ​

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. You can also download the UHC app - Health4Me - from the App​ Store or Google Play and set up your account (after January 1st) and you will have access to an electronic version of your card.
