UnitedHealthcare Introduces New Medicare Advantage Plan for Fort Wayne-Area Beneficiaries

Lutheran Health Network to be preferred care provider for members of new $0-premium plan

Medicare beneficiaries in Allen, Huntington, Kosciusko, Wells and Whitley counties can enroll in the AARP MedicareComplete Focus (PPO) Medicare Advantage plan during the Open Enrollment Period (Oct. 15-Dec. 7). [1]

The AARP MedicareComplete Focus plan has a $0 monthly premium beyond the Part B premium, and includes coverage of prescription drugs, a SilverSneakers fitness membership and UnitedHealthcare's Passport program, which gives consumers access to their benefits when they travel outside of the plan's service area.

The plan covers:

  • hearing aids
  • routine vision and hearing care
  • an annual physical - above and beyond the annual wellness visit available through Original Medicare

To supplement the care from their primary care physician, members can receive a physical exam and comprehensive review of their health status in the comfort of their home through UnitedHealthcare's HouseCalls program. Beneficiaries also have access to health care professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through the NurseLine for support with urgent health issues or concerns that can't wait for the next available doctor's appointment.

AARP MedicareComplete Focus members can access care from Lutheran Health Network's expansive network of hospitals, facilities and affiliated physicians, including eight hospitals, 115 primary care physicians and 164 specialists.*

Members will also have in-network access to care from more than 550 additional care providers, including psychiatrists and chiropractors, as well as 12 hospitals throughout the state of Indiana that are also included in the plan's network.*
