With The Empire Plan you can choose a participating provider or non-participating provider for medical services. You will need to submit claim forms and pay a higher share of the cost if you choose a non-participating provider or non-network provider.
There are over 100,000 UnitedHealthcare Empire Plan participating providers. Managed Physical Network (MPN) offers a network of over 5,000 providers for chiropractic care and physical therapy.
The online directory lists The Empire Plan’s Participating providers. It is updated weekly. Read your Empire Plan documents carefully for complete information on your Empire Plan benefits and Responsibilities.
Using participating providers saves you money
When you choose a participating provider, you pay only your copay for covered services and the provider files the claim. Using participating providers can greatly reduce your out-of-pocket expenses and help contain premium costs.
