Travel and lodging
(For Travel and Lodging for complex medical conditions see "Travel and lodging assistance program" )
The Plan provides a covered member with a travel and lodging allowance related to all covered health services, including Mental Health Care and Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders Services when such covered services are not available within 50 miles of your address, as reflected in UHC's records.
Travel and Lodging provides support for the covered person under the Plan. The Plan provides an allowance for reasonable travel and lodging expenses for a covered member and travel companion when the covered member must travel at least 50 miles from their address, as reflected in UHC's records, to receive the covered services.
This Plan provides an allowance for incurred reasonable travel and lodging expenses only and is independent of any existing medical coverage available for the covered person. An allowance of up to $4,000 per covered person per year, and is further limited to a maximum allowance of $10,000 per covered person per lifetime, will be provided for travel and lodging expenses incurred as a part of the covered service. Lodging expenses are further limited to $50 per night for the covered person, or $100 per night for the covered person with a travel companion.
Please remember to save travel and lodging receipts to submit for reimbursement. If you would like additional information regarding Travel and Lodging, you may contact UnitedHealthcare at [www.myuhc.com] or the telephone number on your ID card.
