United HealthCare Medicare Advantage National PPO Plan

The United HealthCare Medicare Advantage National PPO Plan is a Medicare Part C plan providing primary medical insurance with prescription coverage. Participation in the plan requires the participant and dependents to have both Medicare Part A and Part B. Enrollment without Parts A and B is not permitted. A Medicare Part D plan is included. Medicare rules do not allow participation in more than one (1) Medicare Advantage Plan or one (1) Medicare Part D Plan. Enrollment in another of these plans will result in complete removal from the Plan through the United Methodist Church of Greater New Jersey.

This United HealthCare plan is a custom group Medical plan, designed for the Conference. It does not require you to seek the care of a United Healthcare participating doctor for the lowest out-of-pocket expenses. Reimbursement to the provider (100% of Medicare allowed amount) is the same whether the provider is participating or not.

If you experience any difficulty with your doctor accepting the plan, need help finding a doctor, have a claims issues, benefits questions, or would like help researching the cost of a procedure, please contact our participant advocacy service, a service provided through our broker’s office:
