Premium and Other Important Information
$0 monthly plan premium in addition to your monthly Medicare Part B premium.
Most people will pay the standard monthly Part B premium in addition to their MA plan premium. However some people will pay higher Part B and Part D premiums because of their yearly income (over $85 000 for singles $170 000 for married couples). For more information about Part B and Part D premiums based on income call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048. You may also call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213. TTY users should call 1-800-325-0778.
This plan does not cover all Medicare-covered preventive services with zero cost sharing.
This plan does not allow providers to balance bill (charging more than your cost share amount).
UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE INSURANCE COMPANY INC. will reduce your monthly Medicare Part B premium by up to $ 25.00.
$6 700 out-of-pocket limit.
This limit includes only Medicare-covered services.
** Doctor and Hospital Choice **
Doctor and Hospital Choice
You may go to any doctor specialist or hospital that accepts the plan's terms and conditions of payment.
** Extra Benefits **

This plan uses a formulary. The plan will send you the formulary. You can also see the formulary at www.univhc.com/medicare/members/medicare-formulary.php on the web.
Different out-of-pocket costs may apply for people who
  • have limited incomes
  • live in long term care facilities or
  • have access to Indian/Tribal/Urban (Indian Health Service).
The plan offers national in-network prescription coverage (i.e. this would include 50 states and DC). This means that you will pay the same cost-sharing amount for your prescription drugs if you get them at an in-network pharmacy outside of the plan's service area (for instance when you travel).
Total yearly drug costs are the total drug costs paid by both you and the plan.
The plan may require you to first try one drug to treat your condition before it will cover another drug for that condition.
Some drugs have quantity limits.
Your provider must get prior authorization from Any Any Any Gold (PFFS) for certain drugs.
You must go to certain pharmacies for a very limited number of drugs due to special handling provider coordination or patient education requirements that cannot be met by most pharmacies in your network. These drugs are listed on the plan's website formulary printed materials as well as on the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Finder on Medicare.gov.
If the actual cost of a drug is less than the normal cost-sharing amount for that drug you will pay the actual cost not the higher cost-sharing amount.
If you request a formulary exception for a drug and Any Any Any Gold (PFFS) approves the exception you will pay Tier 4: Non-Preferred Brand Drugs cost sharing for that drug.
The cost sharing for a partial fill of a new prescription will be prorated based on the cost sharing for a full fill of the same prescription.

    • Medicare MSA Plans combine a high deductible Medicare Advantage Plan and a trust or custodial savings account (as defined and/or approved by the IRS). The plan deposits money from Medicare into the account. You can use this money to pay for your health care costs, but only Medicare-covered expenses count toward your deductible. The amount deposited is usually less than your deductible amount, so you generally have to pay out-of-pocket before your coverage begins.
    • Medicare MSA Plans do not cover prescription drugs. If you join a Medicare MSA Plan, you can also join any separate (stand-alone) Medicare Part D prescription drug plan
    • There are additional restrictions to join an MSA plan, and enrollment is generally for a full calendar year unless you meet certain exceptions. Those who disenroll during the calendar year will owe a portion of the account deposit back to the plan. Contact the plan provider for additional information.
