“UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual has entered into an agreement to renew medical insurance coverage for The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America’s medical plan customers. We will broaden choice and access to care for Guardian medical customers through one of the largest local and national networks in the country, highly integrated clinical programs and a full range of affordable products.
We look forward to making UnitedHealthcare health benefits and services available to Guardian’s medical customers. We are committed to responding to local market needs and providing access to the innovative health care products, programs and technology applications offered by a company with broad resources and national scale.
The following is a quick overview of what clients can expect:
As Guardian’s medical customers reach their renewal dates, dedicated UnitedHealthcare sales representatives will work to enroll these customers in a comparable UnitedHealthcare plan.
Guardian medical customers are also welcome to transition to a new medical plan with UnitedHealthcare ahead of their renewal date.
Until members are enrolled in a medical replacement plan with UnitedHealthcare or Guardian’s withdrawal becomes effective, their current benefits remain in effect under their existing contract with Guardian.
During this process, it is business as usual. Guardian is committed to ensuring continued service, medical coverage and payments for its customers during the transition period.”
