How does the UnitedHealth Passport benefit work with my out-of-network benefit?
The Passport program doesn’t change your out-of-network benefit. You can still get the services your plan allows from out-of-network providers who accept Medicare. In some cases, this may be at a higher cost. Your Passport benefit gives you the option to get care from a participating Passport provider at in-network costs.
Is the UnitedHealth Passport benefit only for emergency services?
No, the benefit covers routine medical care from participating Passport providers. You’re always covered for emergency and urgent care whenever and wherever you need it. See your plan’s Evidence of Coverage for more information.
How do I find UnitedHealth Passport providers?
Before you travel, call the customer service number on the back of your member ID card to activate the Passport benefit. A representative will help you find participating Passport providers in the area where you are traveling. You must only use participating providers.
