Switching Health Care Plans? A Large Network Can Help You Skip the Hassle
Change is hard.
Change is even harder when it comes to health care. That’s why so many small business owners are reluctant to change their health insurance plans, even if they feel like they’re paying more for less. They know choosing a new plan could disrupt the hospitals and doctors available to their employees.
But change is easier with the large network offered by UnitedHealthcare. In the five-county Philadelphia metro area, the UnitedHealthcare network includes more than 12,000 doctors and plan members can access the top 10 hospitals in the region. With those numbers, chances are good that your employees can stick to with their favorite docs (you know, the ones with weekend hours and the great magazine selection in the waiting room).
UnitedHealthcare local representatives can help ease the transition, as well. Within 24 hours of installation, your employees can get their new health plan ID cards online for immediate access to the care they need. In addition, UnitedHealthcare is reducing rates for fully insured small businesses by a full 10 percent in 2017*. By comparison, some other carriers are increasing their rates for small businesses—some by up to 32 percent.
Don’t let the fear of disruption discourage you from seeking long-term health benefits for your business. To learn more and get a quote, call UnitedHealthcare today at 1-877-232-8821 or call your broker.
