UnitedHealthcare helps address the diverse health care needs of the hospitality industry. We understand that your employees are your greatest investment. And health insurance is one of the critical factors in helping retain and recruit employees, and may help maintain productivity and increase satisfaction.
Offering the "right" health insurance plan is one of the most important decisions you can make – keeping employees happy and healthy benefits you in the long run. But making sense of the complex health care system has become increasingly difficult for employers.
UnitedHealthcare can help. Our plans may help you save money on health care costs and are designed to be efficient to manage. UnitedHealthcare standard medical plans are available for National Restaurant Association members with a potential savings of up to 5 percent on manual medical rates for fully insured business.* Members also may earn an annual invoice credit of up to 5 percent on administrative fees for new self-funded medical products.** The broad UnitedHealthcare medical product portfolio offers a range of plan designs and options through its vast provider network.
In addition, UnitedHealthcare provides access to a suite of specialty benefits products, including dental, vision, life, disability, accident and critical illness. National Restaurant Association members may save up to 5 percent on rates for these specialty benefits.*** This potential savings is in addition to all other discounts, including those offered through UnitedHealthcare’s bundling benefits programs.
Open Access Plans
UnitedHealthcare offers open access plan designs with fixed dollar copayments, coinsurance options and lower out-of-pocket costs for network care. There are also plan designs that provide a level of benefits for seeking care outside the network normally at a higher coinsurance, and/or deductible level.
UnitedHealthcare offers PPO plan designs with the freedom to choose any doctor. No referrals are needed and cost savings happen by going to a network physician. It is the individual’s responsibility to obtain approvals for both network and non-network services. If a non-network physician is chosen, out-of-pocket costs will be higher and it is the individual’s responsibility to submit claims.
Health Savings Account (HSA) Plans
A high-deductible health plan with an HSA is another option from UnitedHealthcare. These plans cost less than more "traditional" copayment plans. The individual owns the Health Savings Account and any contributions made to it, regardless of the source or timing of the contribution. HSA savings build year after year—no "use it or lose it." The HSA is portable and goes with individuals wherever they go.
These policies have exclusions, limitations and terms under which the policy may be continued in force or discontinued. For costs and complete details of the coverage, contact your broker or UnitedHealthcare sales representative.
*For fully insured groups, a 5% discount on all specialty benefits rates may apply. Some restrictions and exclusions apply. Discounts are available only to members of the National Restaurant Association and its state restaurant association partners; and may vary by location and group size.
**Some restrictions and exclusions apply. The Restaurant & Hospitality Association Benefit Trust is not available in all states. The UnitedHealthcare plan with Health Savings Account (HSA) is a high deductible health plan (HDHP) that is designed to comply with IRS requirements so eligible enrollees may open a Health Savings Account (HSA) with a bank of their choice or through Optum Bank®, Member FDIC. The HSA refers only and specifically to the Health Savings Account that is provided in conjunction with a particular bank, such as Optum Bank®, and not to the associated HDHP.
The National Restaurant Association has chosen UnitedHealthcare as its official health insurance carrier. Insurance plans, plan features, network availability, and pricing vary by state.
