Skip Navigation LinksAttention-Medicare-Members!

Have you heard? People just like you are choosing the UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Plan! That’s because it offers simplicity, predictability and a variety of support services. But don’t take our word for it. Listen to these members:

Remember, if you have not taken action for the 2018 State Health Plan Open Enrollment, time is running out! Open Enrollment ends October 31, 2017.

Important reminders:

All Medicare members currently enrolled in the 70/30 Plan will be automatically enrolled into the UnitedHealthcare® (UHC) Group Medicare Advantage (PPO) Base Plan effective January 1, 2018. You will need to take action during Open Enrollment if you want to be enrolled in a different plan option.

If you are enrolled in a UnitedHealthcare® (UHC) Group Medicare Advantage Plan and are satisfied with your current UHC Group Medicare Advantage Plan, you do NOT need to take any action during Open Enrollment.

Don’t forget, UHC Medicare Advantage plans include:

  • NO deductible
  • Coverage for medical services from doctors, clinics and hospitals in one plan
  • Prescription drug coverage
  • No referral needed to see a specialist
  • The ability to see doctors outside the network for the same copay or coinsurance as in-network providers as long as the provider accepts Medicare and the plan
  • Additional benefits and features beyond Original Medicare like SilverSneakers and House Calls program

Need help deciding which plan works best for you and your family for Open Enrollment? There are a few remaining State Health Plan Medicare Outreach events scheduled. See if one is still scheduled in your area. An invitation was mailed to you last month, and you can also access the schedule by clicking here.

You should have already received your Open Enrollment decision guides.  More information also is available on the State Health Plan website at www.shpnc.org.

As the end of Open Enrollment draws closer, call wait times will be higher, so if you need assistance, please take advantage of the Eligibility and Enrollment Support Center's extended hours during Open Enrollment (855-859-0966): Monday - Friday, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. ET, or Saturday, 8 a.m.-noon ET.
