Finding and booking an appointment with the right healthcare provider is a crucial part of using your health insurance effectively. Here’s a streamlined guide to help you through the process:

1.Find a Doctor or Hospital: You can easily search for in-network doctors or hospitals by using UnitedHealthcare’s provider lookup or the comprehensive provider list. 

(a) Our team has individually called many clinics to curate a list of healthcare providers that accept the essential plan. 

(b) Alternatively, try using UnitedHealthcare’s lookup portal:

Disclaimer - The provider list is accurate to the best of our knowledge, but always confirm directly with your chosen provider before scheduling an appointment.

2. Verify Coverage and Schedule an Appointment: Call the doctor's office or hospital to verify that they accept the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan and make an appointment.

3. Visit the Doctor: Make sure to carry your insurance card to the appointment.

*For members of Essential Plans 2, 3, and 4, your visit will be covered with no copay.
