UnitedHealthcare Shared Services members can access our network
UnitedHealthcare Shared Services is a service model that gives plan sponsors access to the UnitedHealthcare network but allows them to self-administer plan benefits or have a third-party administrator (TPA) administer benefits on their behalf. This means you can treat members with UnitedHealthcare Shared Services because they have access to our network.
