Members may receive services from more than one practitioner. Coordination of Care among practitioners is a best practice, as well as a vital contribution to integrating a member’s physical and behavioral health needs.
Medical-to-medical coordination of care is important for all UnitedHealthcare plans. Equally important is medical-to-behavioral coordination of care.
UnitedHealthcare has compiled a list of helpful tools and resources to support this coordination:
