UnitedHealth Care Announces Its Next Review Cycle for the UnitedHealth Premium Designation Program

September 15, 2008


UnitedHealth Care has announced that the assessment reports for the next Premium® designation cycle are based on refreshed paid claims data and will be sent to physicians in October. Comprehensive information about the program is available on UnitedHealthcare's physician website.

Physicians are encouraged to access this information in order to prepare for the review of their individual data when the reports are issued in October. UnitedHealthcare will notify physicians of their individual designation status at least 45 days prior to any public disclosure of the results to give physicians the opportunity to seek clarification and, if necessary, to request reconsideration. New designations will be available on their consumer websites by the end of the year.
