LOUISIANA

 

In some instances, a physician who performs services at a facility contracted by UnitedHealthcare may not himself have a contract with UnitedHealthcare.  If a non-contracted physician renders service to you or a covered family member, you may experience higher out-of-pocket costs.  To help you avoid these higher costs, the Louisiana Consumer Health Care Provider Network Disclosure Act requires that you have access to information on the network status of anesthesiologists, pathologists, radiologists, emergency medicine physicians and neonatologists at each of our contracted facilities.  To access this information when doing a network facility search, start by clicking on the facility name.  Thereafter, click on the ‘Physician Directory’ link and a list of contracted physicians at that facility will be displayed.  Any physician the facility may use to treat you who is not on the list is likely to be non-participating with UnitedHealthcare.  It is always good idea for you to ask the facility which physicians will be rendering services, and then contact those physicians directly to verify whether they participate with UnitedHealthcare.  You can also call Customer Care at the toll-free number shown on your UnitedHealthcare ID card to obtain the same information.
