Important Health Insurance Reminder
Does your United Health Care ID card show the correct PCP for all your family members? If you enrolled in one of the UHC health insurance plans for 2007, you should have received your ID cards in the mail. If you selected one of the HMO plans and your ID card indicates “No PCP Selected,” it’s important to select a PCP immediately. You can  select a PCP by: 


— Telephone: Call the UHC Customer Service number at 1-800-815-8958.

— Online: Go to www.myUHC.com, select “Physicians and Facilities,” then select “Find a Physician.” You will be able to search for a physician by name or location. The Physician ID number, which is required to complete your PCP selection, is located directly below the physician’s name.

— E-mail : E-mail  oanh_rubink@uhc.com. Additional information on the required information for this method of enrolling is available on the HR web site.

 

For questions on these or any other CUA benefits, call the Office of Human Relations at 202-319-5050 or go to http://humanresources.cua.edu/announcements.
