Wellness benefits for federal employees
UnitedHealthcare’s health coverage plans provide access to resources aimed at helping employees stay healthier and get the most from their health plan. Wellness resources address illnesses and special health care needs to help maintain or improve the well-being of employees and their families.
Certain preventive care items and services, including immunizations, are provided as specified by applicable law, including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and state law, with no cost-sharing to you. These services may be based on your age and other health factors. UnitedHealthcare also covers other routine services, though some plans may require copayments, co or deductibles for these benefits. Always review your plan documents to determine your specific coverage.
