Referrals, Prior Authorizations, Out-of-Network Care
You do not need a referral to see a physician/hospital in the network. If a specific covered health service is not available from a network physician/hospital, your network physician must notify UnitedHealthcare (UHC) Care Coordination to request a “Network Gap Exception.” You are responsible for notifying UHC’s Care Coordination before obtaining services for dental/oral. Certain tests and procedures, including high tech radiology and low back surgery, require prior authorization. You and your physician will be notified in writing of UHC's decision and coverage determination.

If you require emergency or urgent care when outside of the network, seek care at the nearest medical facility. Contact Customer Service at 1-800-357-0974 or your primary care physician if assistance is needed to determine the appropriate level of care. Follow-up care must be completed with your local participating provider or one of our national HMO contracted providers unless approved by UHC.
