Learn about plan types



Get a better understanding of your plan type and learn about the benefits it offers. To verify your plan type, review plan benefits and costs.


Medicare Advantage (MA) plans

These plans combine Medicare Part A and Part B into a single plan and come from a Medicare-approved private insurer, like UnitedHealthcare®, who contracts with the Federal government. UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage PPO for APWU Health Plan offers extra benefits beyond Original Medicare, which includes prescription drug coverage, at no additional cost beyond the monthly plan premium.

There are different types of MA plans. Learn more about your MA plan type:

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans


UnitedHealthcare’s  Medicare Advantage National PPO network  lets you choose between in-network and out-of-network doctors and hospitals and receive the same level of benefit. The plan will reimburse all covered benefits, in or out of the network, as long as they're medically necessary.

You can see any provider outside of the network, as long as they accept Medicare and the plan. Accepting the plan means the doctor is willing to see the retiree and bill UnitedHealthcare.
