UnitedHealth Premium® Program

Premium Program Methodology

Premium Program 2021 Updates

The UnitedHealth Premium program provides physician designations based on quality and cost-efficiency criteria to help members make more informed choices about their medical care.

Physicians may also use these designations when referring patients to other physicians. In markets where tiered benefit plans are available, employers may choose to offer their employees a tiered benefit plan with a lower member cost share for using Premium Care Physicians. For this release, the Premium program uses claims submitted and processed for dates of service prior to the President's proclamation declaring the COVID-19 national public health emergency.
