How does the plan work?
- The Flex plan provides members with the option to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) from one of the distinct networks of participating providers, which is then tied to a specific HMO plan design.
- Employees are required to select the Flex network (Network 1, Network 2, or Network 3) and remain in that network for the plan year. However, each plan member can select his or her own PCP within the selected network.
- During the plan year, members can change their PCP selection within their selected Flex network following our existing guidelines for PCP changes.
To select a PCP, please see the Flex Provider Directory that lists the contracted PCPs by each specific network tier or visit www.uhcwest.com.
