All employees who enroll in a BHGE Medical plan will receive a UHC ID card for 2019.

If the home ZIP/postal code you have on file with the company is outside the service area, that means there may be limited UHC network providers in your area. If this is the case, your options are the out-of-area plans. With the out-of-area plans, you can use any provider for your health care and receive coverage at the in-network coinsurance level. If you are eligible for an out-of-area plan, you will see your options when you enroll in your benefits.
The UHC Medical plans provide coverage at the network level for emergency services received outside the U.S. If you need to seek medical attention while traveling outside the U.S., pay for the services out-of-pocket and then file an International Claim Form with UHC for reimbursement. You can get the International Claim Form by calling UHC at 1-866-743-6549 or 1-866-802-8572 (worldwide).
When you need care, call your primary care physician or family doctor first. Your physician has easy access to your records, knows the bigger picture of your health and may even offer same-day appointments to meet your needs. When seeing your physician is not possible, however, it’s important to know your quick care options to find the place that’s right for you and help avoid financial surprises.
