NexusACO Benefit Plan

UnitedHealthcare NexusACO is a tiered commercial benefit plan designed to encourage members to seek care from Tier 1 providers. Tier 1 providers are either care providers with selected accountable care organizations (ACOs) or UnitedHealth Premium® Care Physicians. NexusACO members have a lower cost share when they receive care from Tier 1 providers and when their PCPs refer them to Tier 1 specialists. To find a care provider’s tier status, see the NexusACO online provider directory.
